Thank you for your generous support of Arizona Public Media’s (AZPM) end-of-calendar year fundraising campaign. Your continued investment in AZPM enables us to continue to be a significant force in our community — informing, inspiring and connecting our community by bringing people and ideas together.
In the coming year, AZPM plans to continue its ambitious strategic initiative to increase the quality and quantity of original content produced for and about our community, the University of Arizona, and the Southwest. We’ve already kicked off the year with the Season 5 premiere of fan-favorite Masterpiece “Downton Abbey,” and, later this month, The American Experience “Edison” profiles the iconoclastic genius whose inventions of sound recording, motion pictures, and electric light propelled America into the modern age.
Beginning Jan. 11, be sure to tune in to NPR 89.1 Sundays at 2 p.m. for Invisibilia, a six-week series hosted by Lulu Miller and Alix Spiegel, creators of RadioLab and This American Life. The series explores a fascinating array of human behavior through personal stories and psychological and brain research.
And in March, PBS 6 will present Ken Burns’ three-part documentary series, Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies. We are currently working to raise funding for the production of a local companion program, Cancer: Unfinished Business (working title), which explores the experience of one Southern Arizona family.
Now more than ever, AZPM relies on the generosity of people like you — because when supporters like you give, we all gain. Thank you for your viewership, listenership, and continued support.
Please accept my best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
