The unprecedented events of the past year means more and more Hoosiers rely on Indiana TV and radio stations for information to keep safe and informed. But beyond the critical up-to-date local news, Indiana broadcasters provided critical resources and put forth unique efforts to support local businesses, schools, and the communities they serve.
During a time when needs were greatest, Indiana broadcasters answered the call. This year’s recipients of the Cardinal Community Service Awards raised more than $2 Million for communities across the state.
Stations consistently hold conversations with local health officials, run public service announcements about vaccine sites and availability, and are on the front lines telling stories about the heart and resiliency of businesses who sacrificed to stay open and serve the communities they care so deeply about.
We hope as a state, country, and world we never have to face a pandemic like COVID-19, again. But Hoosier broadcasters proved they are up for the challenge and are a shining example of the value of local collaboration and spirit.
