In recent months, and particularly since September 1st, we’ve been expanding KUSP Reports, the feature stories about news and cultural events in our area that are part of our morning and afternoon news programs, Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, and All Things Considered. The number of volunteers working on KUSP Reports has now outstripped our inventory of portable recording equipment — the gear they need to go out into the field and record sound at news events, do interviews, and so on.
KUSP Leadership Circle donor Paul Johnson wants to see more local coverage on the air. To make this possible, he has offered us a matching challenge grant. If KUSP members donate $1,000 to buy our volunteers more field recording gear, he will match that with a $1,000 contribution of his own. This campaign is starting today and will run until the end of next week.
