Description

A Community Resource WILL's television and radio programs teach, entertain and draw people into the public affairs of the places they live and work From the children who gather to watch Sesame Street at their day care center, to farmers who listen to the market reports from their tractor cabs, to commuters whose spirits are lifted by soaring music, the people of central Illinois find that their lives are enriched by WILL. Each week, more than 130,000 people tune to WILL-TV, 48,000 tune to WILL-AM and 44,000 tune to WILL-FM. The public broadcasting service of the University of Illinois, WILL links thousands of families to the programming of National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). WILL is not only a source of high-quality, commercial-free programming; it is an important community resource as well, offering life-saving tornado safety seminars, free classical music concerts, workshops for parents and child care providers, and agricultural outlook session for farmers. WILL's commitment to human and community values extends to the aspirations we have for our own workplace, as expressed in The Character and Aspirations of the Division of Broadcasting.
