2023 Local Content and Services Report

In Fiscal Year 2023, Ideastream Public Media ventured out of the studio and into the vibrant communities of our expanded 22-county service area. In the first year of our new strategic plan, Ideastream made great strides toward key goals: providing trustworthy news and information, spotlighting our region’s rich arts and entertainment scene, catalyzing the appreciation of timeless classical and jazz music and serving families in community spaces with high-quality educational programming.
