About LPM

Louisville Public Media (LPM) is an independent, community supported non-profit serving our Louisville metropolitan area with three distinct public radio stations and an investigative newsroom. 89.3 WFPL News Louisville provides local, national and international news, public affairs and cultural programming. 90.5 WUOL Classical Louisville is our city’s only classical music and fine arts radio station. 91.9 WFPK Independent Louisville showcases independent, alternative music and an array of musical genres. The Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting (KyCIR) shines the light of accountability on the people and institutions in power.

The stations sustain more than 200,000 weekly listeners who share a desire for rigorous, independent journalism, long-form coverage of local news and culture, insight into national and international issues, and a breadth of musical exploration.

LPM also serves as a community convener for public affairs, civil discourse, and culture. It presents public panels and free public concerts, and leverages community resources through partnerships and media sponsorships.

The local community provides 91% of the funding for Louisville Public Media: including 31% from area businesses, 59% from membership, and 1% from grants. We receive no city or state support. Federal funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting accounts for 5% of the annual budget.


Our entire community is strengthened by the quality and success of this public service.

Your support makes it possible. Thank you.
