WUKY Open Meeting Policy:

It is WUKY’s policy to fully comply with the requirements of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1934 that meetings of its governing board be open to the public. WUKY’s governing board is the Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky. The primary purpose of the Board of Trustees is the operation of the university as a whole. As such, most of the Board’s regular meetings are not subject to the open meetings provisions of the Act. When open meetings as defined by the Act are scheduled, the dates, times, and locations of those meetings will be published here.

WUKY Diversity Statement: 

Diversity and inclusion inform the strategic plans of both WUKY and our licensee, the University of Kentucky. WUKY believes diversity should impact both staffing and programming decisions. Moreover we take a long-range view. The demographics of our country and region are changing dramatically. We must anticipate that change. Where will the next generation of WUKY staff, programs, and listeners come from? How will we ensure WUKY will reflect the diversity of our community in ten or even twenty years? Thus, in addition to addressing diversity in new staff hires or programming choices made today, we are training a diverse crew of interns, working closely with Central Kentucky high schools, and providing technical, programming & editorial support Lexington’s two LPFM stations.

WUKY has eleven full-time and five part-time staff. It is always difficult with a small staff to perfectly mirror a vibrant community of over 300,000 people, particularly at a station that has historically low turnover rates. Indeed there have been no full-time job openings at the station for over three years. Despite this, WUKY’s staff generally reflects our community in terms of race, ethnicity, economic status, geography, gender, age, and other diversity criteria. Women comprise over one-third of full-time staff, and we have one African-American staff member (part-time).

WUKY’s well-established internship program provided hands-on training to a diverse array of nine students from both UK and area high schools. These interns did general assignment news reporting, writing, sound recording and script voicing, helped cover the state legislature, and assisted with music programming, membership, social media and station/community events.

WUKY continued to support and broadcast Key Conversations Radio, a weekly one-hour program devoted to minority issues. WUKY also sponsored a wide array of diverse community events from the Pride Festival to the Lex-Latino Film Festival to the Women Writers Conference.

WUKY partnered with StoryCorps and nearly 20 diverse community organizations to record, preserve, and broadcast the stories of people from all walks of life in our region. Also during the year, all WUKY staff participated in mandatory Unconscious Bias training.

WUKY underwent a comprehensive FCC review of its EEO program in Spring 2017. In addition, our diversity program and FCC EEO compliance are reviewed annually by the Sanchez Law Firm and UK officials.
