Help KPR Hire a New Statehouse Reporter!
Your gift today will go directly to hiring a new Kansas Public Radio Statehouse News Reporter. KPR's longtime Statehouse Bureau Chief left for another position several months ago, and recent budget cuts mean we need help in order to hire a new reporter and continue providing this important service.
Since 1978, Kansas Public Radio’s Statehouse Bureau Chief has provided year-round coverage from the capitol building in Topeka. State government is complicated, but our listeners have always known they can count on us for in-depth updates on the legislative session, elections and the day-to-day state politics that affect all Kansans. Taxes, school finance, the state's response to the pandemic—it takes a full-time reporter to cover these issues in a way that keeps all of us informed, so we can make decisions about our daily lives and elected officials. In recent years, KPR has made statehouse news available, free of charge, to other radio stations and newspapers. We do this because we know how important it is for our fellow Kansans to have this information, and we want it to reach as many individuals as possible.
Please consider a gift towards a new Statehouse Bureau Chief today, during One Day. One KU. With your help we can continue to keep an eye on state government, and the state in general...for you! Help us continue the important tradition of Statehouse news provided by Kansas Public Radio. Thank you!
