Richmond Mayor Jim Barnes (pictured at left) recently issued a proclamation for WEKU Public Radio Week Oct. 7-13. Representing the station was Wendy Barnett (pictured at right).
The station is celebrating its 50th anniversary of service this year.
The proclamation says that WEKU is “an invaluable component of our area’s priority missions in public safety, emergency services, information, community education, cultural vitality and entertainment.”
It goes on to say that the station ‘contributes to the local economy by actively engaging in economic development, supporting local businesses, and directly providing employment and volunteer opportunities. It delivers its support for non-profit, charitable, public service projects and events in our community throughout the year ... is deeply rooted in our community and continuously strives to be an effective, positive and productive organization that our citizens can count on at all times.”
