Dear Friends

As we look back on the accomplishments of the past year, we are struck by how much your support has contributed to the successes, both great and small, that we share. Together, we continue to adapt to circumstances that just a few years ago were unimaginable. Through it all, we continue to be grateful for your constant support and encouragement.

Last year’s accomplishments demonstrate Arizona Public Media’s (AZPM) focus on connecting the Southern Arizona community to global events through a local perspective and serving the community with distinctive television, radio, and online content, activities, and resources.

Even as Arizona schools began to reopen, Arizona At-Home Learning continued to provide K-12 digital resources and educational television programs aligned with state curriculum standards to students, teachers, and parents. AZPM’s popular Library Night Out partnership with the Pima County Public Library became Library Night In as it was adapted to a virtual format. Likewise, Global Arts Showcase, which celebrates the diverse communities, cultures, and people that make Southern Arizona special, migrated to a virtual format. Attendance at these virtual events seemed to indicate the community is hungry for connection and engagement. If anything, the virtual versions of these events were even better attended than the live events of this kind in the past. It is humbling to realize that AZPM was a consistent and reassuring source of human interaction as in-person contact became impossible for many of our neighbors during the pandemic.

Viewers and listeners relied on AZPM’s television, radio, and online news programs for information on local and national elections, public affairs, world news, and issues that affect Southern Arizona. Their confidence in AZPM’s coverage was confirmed by ratings, community acclaim, and industry peers. AZPM’s PBS 6 was the top-rated public television station for cumulative (per capita) audience among the nation’s 56 largest television markets in 2020. NPR 89.1 achieved #1 overall ranking in radio in the Tucson Metro area in both Nielsen’s 2020 summer survey and its 2020 Continuous Diary Market trend report for September and October, and was voted the best radio station for news by readers of the Tucson Weekly for the 10th year in a row. AZPM staff earned eight individual Emmy® awards in 2020 and nearly doubled that in the fall of 2021, with an additional 15 Emmy® awards, more than any other station in Tucson and, in 2021, more than any other public media organization in the four-state region. In addition, AZPM was recognized with six regional Edward R. Murrow awards for journalistic excellence in 2020.

Arizona Public Media is generously provided as a community service of the University of Arizona. Your continued support makes it possible for AZPM to share the rich heritage and unique cultures of Southern Arizona throughout the region and, digitally, with audiences around the globe. We are humbled by and grateful for your continued investment in Arizona Public Media.

Thank you for your support!

As an octogenarian, I continue to enjoy a full life. I travel to new places, I try different recipes and cooking techniques, I have both drama and humor at my fingertips, I acquire knowledge about both domestic and wild animals, I study and love history, I observe national holidays honoring US war veterans, I am exposed to the latest (and most accurate) world news on a daily basis, and I am able to feel part of live performances in the arts. Thanks to PBS and AZPM, I am able to do all this without leaving my cozy den. Out of gratitude, why wouldn’t I support AZPM? Giving back is my joy in return for a life I wouldn’t have otherwise. - Jane S., Leadership Giving Society Member
