KPR Receives $100,000 in Budget Cuts for this Fiscal Year

Earlier this month, the University of Kansas announced more than $1 million in targeted spending reductions. That’s in response to the state of Kansas trimming KU’s total state funding by more than $10 million this fiscal year to help balance the state budget. This is a part of the overall $30 million in cuts to higher education made by the state in May 2016. 

Kansas Public Radio was among the units included in the reductions, receiving $100,000 in budget cuts for this fiscal year. This unprecedented cut represents about 20 percent of the funding KPR gets from the University of Kansas.

“It will be difficult to absorb these cuts, especially since we only have 10 months left this fiscal year,” said Dan Skinner, KPR Director. “The good news is, we have more than 100,000 listeners who depend on us for access to news and arts programming. We are hopeful that these same listeners will help us fill the funding gap and keep Kansas Public Radio Strong.”
