WKNO Capital Campaign for Digital Media Center
From the very beginning, the vision for WKNO was to
provide the Mid-South with the opportunity to experience and explore
the breadth and depth of the world around us. We are dedicated to
nourishing the same spirit of exploration into the 21st century.
Every day, we invite our viewers, listeners and supporters to join
us for the new experiences, ideas, opportunities and perspectives
that lay ahead.
The transition to digital broadcasting provides WKNO
television and radio the platform to provide the community with multiple
program services as part of our mission to inform, enlighten, educate
WKNO’s new Digital Media Center at Cherry Farms
Road and Goodlett Farms Parkway, will provide the needed digital
foundation for enhanced service to our viewers and listeners.
The 39,000 square foot building is the home for
WKNO offices as well as production and broadcast operations for the
public television and radio stations. The state-of-the-art center
includes two TV studios – one equipped with HD production
equipment – an HD edit suite, and new digitally equipped FM
By blending popular PBS and NPR programs with increased
local programs and features that showcase our community, the new
building will assist WKNO to advance its mission of service.
Thanks to the generous
support of Individuals, Foundations and Corporations, WKNO has completed
the construction of the Digital Media Center debt-free.
For over 50 years, Community Support has kept WKNO
going and has made the programming services presented possible. Please
consider making a pledge now to help WKNO to complete this campaign.
