What is the Corporation for Public Broadcasting?

  • The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) is a private, nonprofit corporation and the largest single source of funding for public radio, television, and related online and mobile services.
  • CPB acts as the steward for the government’s investment in public broadcasting.
  • Each year, Congress appropriates funds to CPB, which CPB then distributes directly to stations as Community Service Grants (CSGs).

 Does WKSU get funds from CPB?

WKSU welcomes listeners to join in the conversation surrounding Donald J. Trump’s first 100 days as President through ‘Indivisible.’ This hour-long call-in show will air on WKSU Mondays through Thursdays at 8 p.m. beginning today (Monday, Jan. 23) and continuing for 14 weeks. Produced by WNYC, Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) and The Economist, ‘Indivisible’ is intended to bring Americans together for a national conversation during President Trump’s transition, which follows an extremely contentious election season.

On Dec. 27, WKSU began broadcasting from W234CX 94.7 in Mansfield. The signal originates north of US 30 and broadcasts WKSU on-air broadcasts to much of the Mansfield area, filling in WKSU's coverage west of Ashland and south of the station's tower in Norwalk. Drivers traveling on I-71 should also be able to hear WKSU for more of their journey. 

In an effort to counter the effects of “fake news” and unchecked misinformation on social media and beyond, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has established the Knight News Match. WKSU has been named one of 57 specially-chosen non-profit news organizations to participate in this challenge grant program. The Knight News Match promises to match all individual donations up to $1,000 made to WKSU now through Jan. 19, 2017, with a cap of $25,000.
