The Cost of Quality Content

This is from the Manager’s Desk.  

Two weeks ago I noted the “larger-than-expected-increase” in the price of some of our national programs. Part of my reaction is because we expect small decreases in some funding sources, and it all affects the KGOU budget. 

Even more, we have a very strong vision about expanding our local programmatic services to you, and are searching for ways to achieve that vision.

The truth is that any quality information service is expensive whether it comes from a national provider, or is produced on the local level.  The largest cost is highly-skilled staff who can research and write, who can explain well, provide context, who are responsible.

More and more information sources are available to you every day, but I believe that every dollar devoted to the high quality content KGOU offers keeps the talented people that make that programming happen.

Anything less would not fulfill our mission!

Thanks!  From the Manager’s Desk, I’m Karen Holp.
