Officials in Evansville have cut the ribbon on the city’s new public radio and television hub. The new $3.8 million WNIN Tri-State Public Media Inc. headquarters was supported by funding including the state’s Regional Cities Initiative and the Move2Main capital campaign.
WNIN is an Inside INdiana Business partner. The media center includes production studios for the radio, television and digital properties, as well as a cinema-style theater, radio music hall and reading center for dozens of volunteers who read and record newspaper stories for people with visual impairments. During the unveiling of the public phase of its fundraising, Chief Executive Officer Brad Kimmel said "the new WNIN Public Media Center will become a more engaging community asset."
The project received corporate support from sources including Deaconess Hospital, Koch Foundation Inc., Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana Inc, German American Bancorp. Inc. (Nasdaq: GABC), Old National Bancorp (Nasdaq: ONB) and Alan Braun, Sharon Braun and Maurita Braun.
