Over the last year we have had strategic discussions about how KCPT can remain a valuable asset to the community. To that end, we have identified five areas of focus – Children and their education; Health; Arts & Culture; Sustainability; and Entrepreneurship. Through multi-media coverage of these focus areas, KCPT will elevate the community’s understanding and keep the conversation going around these important
I am happy to report that we have received funding for three of these focus areas – what we refer to as “desks” – Education Desk, Healthcare Desk, and Life Sciences Desk. The content will be organized by KCPT staff along with external relationships with expert partners. The stories from these “desks” will show up on many different venues, including The Local Show, Week in Review, between program vignettes, the KCPT website, and social media.
The “desks” are not championing any specific cause or point of view. Instead, our team will work to ensure that the citizens of our region have a common vision and common language around these important and impactful subject matters. We sincerely thank these foundations for their financial support and helping us tell these stories.
• The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in support of the Education Desk.
• The Healthcare Foundation in support of the Healthcare Desk.
• The Hall Family Foundation in support of the Life Sciences Desk.
We remain very excited and optimistic about our role in the community. Your membership is key in helping KCPT continue our mission as a valuable asset in our region.
