Because of changes at American Public Media, WKSU has added APM Reports to its News Channel (heard on WKSU HD-4 and online) on Sundays at 9 PM. APM Reports' in-depth investigations and documentaries strive to raise awareness, trigger debate, and prompt positive change. APM Reports journalists shine light on the truth with distinctive reporting.

APM Reports Broadcast Schedule for January:

Sunday, Jan. 7:  Shadow Class: College Dreamers in Trump’s America

Sunday, Jan. 14:  Keeping Teachers

On Friday, Jan. 5, Robert Siegel hangs up his 'All Things Considered' microphone after more than 40 years at NPR. Siegel started at the fledgling network as a newscaster in 1976 (NPR had only launched in 1971). He retires as a respected and honored journalist who helped shape public radio news. 

Sexual harassment and gender discrimination have been met with a grassroots response in the #MeToo moment. On Jan. 22-25 from 8 PM-9 PM, WKSU presents Beyond #MeToo, four one-hour conversations focused on what we need to do as a society to remedy widespread sexual harassment.

Produced by WNYC, the four-night broadcast event covers the workplace, corrective responses, how we are raising and educating our children in this environment and how men can play a role in the solution.
