KSPS PBS and Spokane Public Radio Join Forces to Inspire Advocacy and Donations on Public Media Giving Days on May 1-2
Spokane's public television and public radio stations are teaming up to amplify Public Media Giving Days, a two-day, digital and broadcast event in May that will create and expand conversations between public media stations and their communities.

Public Media Giving Days is not a paid event. While viewers of PBS and listeners to NPR are invited to visit their local public media stations' websites and donate, the event welcomes public media fans to participate in whatever way you see fit. Suggestions include mentioning favorite programs and memories on social media (using the hashtag #publicmediagives)
"Public television and radio have incredibly loyal audiences," said Skyler Reep, director of development at KSPS PBS. "We hear powerful stories from our supporters about how Sesame Street helped them learn English after immigrating or how Rick Steves allowed them to 'travel' when finance or circumstance otherwise prevented it. Public Media Giving Days invites our loyal viewers and listeners to share these stories with their family, friends, and neighbors to advocate for these vital services."
Public broadcasting supporters are invited to participate in Public Media Giving Days by visiting KSPS PBS or Spokane Public Radio online or tuning in to watch KSPS PBS on channel 7 or 7.1 or to listen to Spokane Public Radio on 91.1, 91.9, or 90.3 FM. Public television fans are especially reminded to support public radio and vice versa.
