WSIU Public Broadcasting
#SIUDAY March 7, 2018

Since 1958, WSIU has provided trusted programming and services that inspire personal growth, community engagement, and a love for learning in people of all ages.  The WSIU stations serve more than three million people across five states and beyond through three digital television channels, three radio stations, an HD radio channel, a website, local production units, and an educational and community outreach department. Additional services include the Southern Illinois Radio Information Service (SIRIS), operated by WSIU Radio, which helps 1,000 individuals who are blind or whose physical condition prevents them from reading stay connected to the world. 

WSIU also offers professional development in the broadcast industry to hundreds of students each year.  Licensed to the Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University, WSIU Public Broadcasting is an integral part of the College of Mass Communication & Media Arts on the Carbondale campus.

WSIU is powered by you.  Without your loyal support, the services we provide wouldn’t be possible.  When you make a contribution to WSIU, you are making an impact today, and, you’re a champion and advocate for a bright future.
