Fiscal Year 2021 Community Report
Throughout Fiscal Year 2021, Ideastream Public Media took on a multitude of monumental tasks. From October 2020 to September 2021, we launched a rebrand, joined forces with WKSU public radio and collaborated with regional public media stations on workforce development. We feel a sense of pride and gratitude when looking back on these accomplishments, but we are also eager to share with you what we are doing in Fiscal Year 2022 and beyond. For instance, we would be remiss to exclude our new strategic plan and the formation of The Ohio Newsroom. Find out more in our Fiscal Year 2021 Community Report.
2023–2025 Strategic Plan
The needs of our communities are changing. Trustworthy news is in great demand. Classical and jazz music are reaching new audiences. Digital content consumption only keeps growing. Over the next three years, Ideastream Public Media will meet these needs and expand its services to communities across Northeast Ohio and throughout all of Ohio. Find out more in our 2023–2025 Strategic Plan.
