Due to COVID-19, the Indiana Broadcasters Association is not able to honor this year’s Cardinal Community Service recipients during in-person ceremonies.  However, throughout the rest of the year, the IBA will share conversations with this year’s honorees to talk about the impactful work they are doing in their local communities.

IBA Director of Member Services Sam Klemet talks with the President and CEO of Lakeshore Public Media in Merrillville, James Muhammad, who talks about how his TV and radio stations are discussing issues of race both locally and on a larger scale.

IBA Director of Member Services Sam Klemet talks with the General Manager of DC Broadcasting in Jasper, Bill Potter, who talks about how his five radio stations and TV station answered the call of the community in response to the global pandemic.
