Hello valued WPSU Board members!

We hope you can spare an hour, before next Tuesday’s meeting, to watch the pre-meeting informational updates and production clips.

To view that video, please click here.

As we begin a new year of meetings in 2022, the Executive Committee wanted to check your preferences for the best day of the week to meet all day – especially in anticipation that we will be able to meet IN PERSON beginning with our May 2022 Annual Meeting at the Penn Stater.  Please complete this Doodle poll (it’s fast and friendly) to have the best attendance possible for our 2022 meetings: Please remember that we meet four (4) times a year as a full Board (February, May, August, November ) and request your presence to attend as per our By-laws.

DOODLE POLL – https://doodle.com/poll/crungkx56ytzmbz3?utm_source=poll&utm_medium=link

Jessica Peters, our WPSU Membership Director, is inviting each Board member to join in a special Thank you Phone Blitz!  On November 17 and 18 we’d love for you to join us as we call our donors to thank them for their generosity that keeps us strong as an organization. We will provide you with basic donor information, scripts to use, an FAQ sheet, and feedback forms in case a donor has a specific Membership question or comment that requires a callback. The days will be broken in to 2-hour shifts from 9AM-5PM, with TV donors contacted primarily on 11/17 and FM donors contacted primarily on 11/18.

If you participate, we will need you to be in the building, just so the calls are coming from a Penn State number, but the calls can be done from an office or empty cube space that is appropriately distanced from anyone else in the area. Or, alternatively, we will have phones set up in the Volunteer Area just past the radio suite. Please note that if you are in the Volunteer Area you will need to please wear a mask, including while calling.

Jessica understands that since these calls need to originate from our studio in University Park, that may be difficult for our out-of-town board members, and we certainly understand.  We wanted to make sure everyone is invited to volunteer!

Click here to sign up for a shift to make calls either in an office space, or in the Volunteer Area and thanks!

Finally, we look forward to seeing you all virtually next Tuesday morning.  If you have not already – please RSVP Chrissy or me AQAP to ensure a quorum.  Just hit reply and Thanks!

If you should need to contact us the day of the meeting, please call or text Chrissy at (814) 574-7744.


Be well and safe,

Carolyn Donaldson

November Meeting wrap up

Thursday, November 19, 2020

Good afternoon WPSU Board members, Tracey Huston, invited guests and staff!

Thank you to all who were able to join us this morning.  We hope you found the conversation around diversity, equity, and inclusion to be engaging and actionable.

We thank Dr. Peggy Lorah who kept us engaged and inspired us to think deeply and in new ways to take our next steps in this ongoing directive.

We look forward to continuing these conversations throughout the upcoming year and beyond and will be working with our own Outreach DEI director Karen Armstrong to build on the foundation that each of you helped create this morning.

Here are the links to materials that were presented as part of the discussion today:

The link to our website that Greg mentioned with the WPSU Editorial Guidelines and Code of Ethics can be found here.

The link to the Pennsylvania PBS website where you can opt in to receive their newsletter can be found here.

The article WPSU producer Lindsey Whissel Fenton spoke of called: “Strategy is Not Enough:  The Importance of Changing the Culture of Public Media” can be found here.

You are welcome to join the Recap of the 2020 election results and what they mean for public broadcasting with the APTS team and their special guest, Amna Nawaz from the PBS NewsHour,  tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.

Amna Nawaz has been with the PBS NewsHour since 2018, where she is senior national correspondent and primary substitute anchor. Her reporting covers a wide array of issues and she was part of the PBS NewsHour’s election night coverage this year.

Register for the call on November 19 at 1:00 p.m., by clicking here.

The Virtual APTS Public Media Summit will be held Monday, February 22 – Tuesday, February 23, 2021.  It is the largest annual gathering of public broadcasting general managers and community leaders who come together to explore issues that are vital to the future and mission of public service media.

There is one (1) Board slot open as John Pozza claimed one during the meeting. Please let me (cld285@psu.edu) if you are interested in attending.  First come; first served.

Shortly, we will have materials and the recording link (minus the zoom bombing) on our WPSU Board Portal.  Simply head to wpsu.org, scroll down to bottom of Home page – click on “Board Portal”.  The password is:  welovewpsupennstate.

Please allow us time to make the appropriate edits and thanks!

Please be safe, well and a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.

We are most thankful for each of you!
