Wednesday, October 19 from 9:00-11:00 p.m.: Presidential Debate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

As always, a major function of being a public radio station is to take the time to listen to the programming needs of community members in our listening area. You can help us do this by taking the 2016/2017 WAMC Ascertainment Survey by going to survey takes about 4 minutes to complete and it is an excellent way to let us know how we can better serve the radio programming needs of your community and region. If have already taken the survey, feel free to share the link with friends, family and neighbors in your community-even if they don’t listen to the station! Getting feedback from non-listeners is essential because it allows us to discover what we can do to convert a non-listener into a listener. Thank you!
