Impact 2018


A Note From LPM’s President

Dear Friends,

I joined Louisville Public Media because I believe journalism is a public service that makes our democracy work. I believe a great city is only great when it has vibrant music and arts. And I believe when we work together, we can see past our differences and understand each other more deeply.

Louisville Public Media has long been driven by these principles. Every day, we work to provide you with the news and information you need to make informed decisions about our community and our world via 89.3 WFPL. We seek to expose wrongdoing and protect the vulnerable with our work at the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting. We chronicle the generational shifts in our region through the Ohio Valley ReSource.

We produce journalism that keeps you informed and makes our community and its institutions better.

We know that cities are defined in many ways by the art and music they produce. And here in Louisville, we have a special scene. We highlight that every day on 91.9 WFPK — in our programming, at Waterfront Wednesday and the many concerts we help produce, and in the knowledge of the voices you trust to lead your discovery of new music.

We understand the inherent value of classical music for our community, and through 90.5 WUOL, we bring it to your homes, offices, cars and anywhere you are. We also know the power of music education, and so we work in schools and community centers to teach young people, because music and arts are vital to a well-rounded education.

We also know that it takes a lot to navigate the world today, and Louisville has never had a more vibrant social life. That’s why Do502 is here for you, working every day to provide a comprehensive guide to the events happening all around us.

I’ve always thought of Louisville Public Media as a public service institution. We are here not to tell you what to think or like, but to provide you with what you need to make informed choices in your life. We do it without fear or favor. We do it because we love this community.

That is powerful impact. On this website, you’ll see that impact chronicled in various ways — through storytelling, membership, audience, engagement, revenue, and service, among others.

Your support makes it all possible. So thank you — for helping us get to where we are, and for joining us to build a strong foundation for the future.

Stephen George, President, Louisville Public Media

Louisville Public Media

“…information is an essential community need. It is as real a need as education, jobs, housing and a vibrant cultural life.”

— John S. and James L. Knight Foundation


Because an informed and educated citizenry is vital to a healthy democracy and a thriving city, Louisville Public Media provides broad access to news and cultural programming that is free from commercial and political influence.


To be the essential community resource for news and culture, filling the void in local journalism and cultural programming; to lead the way in the development of new technologies which keep the public aware, informed, and engaged; to be the primary convener of discussion about the key issues affecting our diverse community.

“WFPL gets me to work and back every day and keeps me company every Saturday. Investigative reporting is very important to me: I listened to The Pope’s Long Con in one sitting. WFPK keeps me moving all day, and for five years in a row I first heard my favorite new album and artist courtesy of the best DJs ever on 91.9.”

~ Austin Warren



With Tallis and Tech: A Virtual Reality Choral Experience, 90.5 WUOL partnered with the Louisville Chamber Choir and Kent Hatteberg to pair Tallis’ masterpiece with 21st century technology: VR/360 video and sound. WUOL’s team recorded Tallis’ Spem in alium, sung by the Louisville Chamber Choir, in Louisville at 21c Museum Hotel, St. James Catholic Church and the elevator of the Brown Hotel. The result is a remarkable new way to experience some of the world’s oldest music.

The Pope's Long Con


The Pope’s Long Con is a Peabody Award-winning five-part podcast that focused on former Kentucky Rep. Dan Johnson’s life of fraud and deceit, including allegations of arson and sexual assault of a minor. Lawmakers called for Johnson’s resignation within hours of the story’s publication, and Louisville’s mayor demanded that police reopen their investigation into the alleged sexual assault. The podcast was reported by R.G. Dunlop and Jacob Ryan and produced by Laura Ellis. The full team credited on the series included editors Brendan McCarthy, Erica Peterson and Stephen George; web developer Alexandra Kanik; and creative director Sean Cannon.



WUOL’s Sara Calloway and Shawn Hennessey of Squallis Puppeteers partnered to create a traveling show for children based on Ferdinand the Bull. They visited 25+ schools, sharing live classical music, puppetry and storytelling with more than 2,000 children.



Louisville Public Media celebrated the completion of its newly renovated headquarters and the completion of its “Raise Your Voice” campaign with a public open house and block party celebration. The event featured NPR President and CEO Jarl Mohn, and performances by local artists, including a selection from an original work about Muhammad Ali that debuted during the Louisville Orchestra season celebration.

Investigative Reporting With Impact


KyCIR’s Kate Howard learned that Louisville Metro Police officers were quietly helping immigration agents as they enforce federal law, a practice in contrast with statements from city leaders and the “compassionate city” image they project. The reporting took numerous records requests, interviews and months of work. The results were immediate. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer called for a review within hours of our story’s publication. The police department created a new policy preventing officers from joining Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for “knock and talks,” as they had been when asked. And the city council passed an ordinance that made that policy permanent.



In 2017, Louisville Public Media acquired the assets of the popular citywide calendar service Do502. LPM has partnered with Austin-based DoStuff Media to continue operating and the Do502 app, and expanded the calendar to include a broad range of cultural, sports, family, educational and community events. Via the free Do502, people can find out what’s happening in the city, share events with friends, and easily buy tickets or enter sweepstakes to win tickets. Do502 is the engine powering the event calendars for WFPK, Insider Louisville, New2Lou and Fund for the Arts.

The Next Louisville


This year, WFPL continued The Next Louisville project with support from the Community Foundation of Louisville, digging deep on the issue of concentrated poverty in our community. Reporters examined disparities in trash can placement, public transit access, and retirement, along with telling the stories of people in some of these areas who choose to stay in their communities and fight for their future.

Louisville Public Media acquires Do502


91.9 WFPK Independent Louisville and the Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation hosted the 16th season of the wildly popular WFPK Waterfront Wednesday concert series. Thousands attended these free summer concerts on the Waterfront with performances by The Mavericks, Pokey LaFarge, Strand of Oaks, Low Cut Connie and others.

Music & Movement


What happens when a dance party has Top 40 hits along with Beethoven and Mozart? Over 1,500 elementary students found out at the end of the school year. Mozart’s Lacrimosa was played as students entered to take their seats. Beethoven’s 5th Symphony was used as a signal to notify students that it was time for a “challenge.” The challenges spanned from the best floss dance, to singing discontinued cartoon themes, to the lowest limbo.



90.5 WUOL, in partnership with the Muhammad Ali Center, presented the modern-day premiere of a recently discovered string quartet by Florence Price. Price is generally considered the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer.

WFPL News Editor Jonese Franklin


In FY 2018, WFPL launched Recut: a weekly podcast taking a closer look at one of the stories we’re covering, with the reporter who covered it. Hosted by WFPL News Editor Jonese Franklin (above) and produced by WFPL’s Laura Ellis, the podcast clocks in around 15 minutes every week. Through an in-depth conversation, Recut pulls back the curtain on the news process and breaks down the story, often including sound that didn’t make it into the final version.

Kentucky State Capitol coverage


Through a partnership with other public radio stations in Kentucky, WFPL continued its in-depth coverage of state government. From Frankfort, Kentucky Public Radio reporter Ryland Barton followed the twists and turns of the legislative process, including efforts from state lawmakers to pass major pension reform and the teacher protests that followed.


WFPL continued to experiment with new ways to engage readers and listeners through our Curious Louisville project. Using the Hearken module, our audience asked questions about everything from the unique pronunciation of “Loo-ah-vull” to the backstory of Clifton’s “chicken steps.” The staff also used the Curious Louisville framework for gathering audience questions to pose to the Louisville mayoral candidates before the May primary, and for soliciting questions for a news special on the potential state takeover of Jefferson County Public Schools.

The Music Box Podcast


In March 2018 we released our first episode of The Music Box, a podcast for children about classical music. Since then we’ve released 5 episodes and started working on Season 2. The first season featured topics about how to make your own instruments, musical eras, and much more. Season 2 will explore different elements of music in an effort to support the 50+ new JCPS music teachers.

Classical Corner


This year, we added new music activities for young people and families to WFPK Waterfront Wednesday. The 90.5 WUOL Classical Corner has featured DrumSmart, KMAC, Squallis Puppeteers, Compass Quartet, and Louisville Folk School. We’ve engaged 500+ families with hands-on music activities on the Big Four Lawn.


“The stations are a huge part of our daily lives. We love the connection each host has to the music or news they share with their audience. These stations help build a stronger community in Louisville and we are proud to support them!”

~ Ellen and Colin Drake
