LPM Boasts About Numbers

Louisville Public Media says it’s continuing to set records for attracting audience on its three public radio stations. A news release sent today claims the stations (WFPL, WFPK, and WUOL) increased their audience 38 percent from Spring 2008 to 2009, accumulating its largest audience ever.

“Now, more than ever, people are looking for quality, independent journalism, and we’re working harder than ever to fulfill that need.  We’re also excited to see continued growth for our music stations, which are committed to supporting the local cultural scene,” said Todd Mundt, LPM’s VP.

The release added that its last five membership campaigns have set records, saying it is bucking the national trend of declining audience and revenue.
