Dear friend of WERS,
The President has just released his full budget proposal for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018, which begins in less than five months. Like the “skinny budget” issued in March, it proposed to eliminate funding for public media.
Federal funding enables WERS to bring you the music discovery you can count on.
Public media ensures that valuable content is accessible to all communities, across the country. Stations like WERS serve as a vital gateway to the arts and culture, platform for local artists, and a reliable source of specialty programming you won’t hear anywhere else.
To learn more about why federal funding for public media is essential and how you can help, please visit protectmypublicmedia.org.
Thank you for your time. Working together, we can ensure Americans continue to have access to high-quality public media.
Dr. Jack Casey
General Manager of WERS
