Every day, we read correspondence via email, snail mail, and social networking telling us how much KETR is appreciated as a source of vital news and information, as well as entertainment and education! Nearly everyone we talk to tells the same story: that it's important to have a source of information that isn't held privately, and whose content isn't driven by the almighty dollar.

Our station has a dual-purpose, and it's defined in our mission:

KETR is committed to providing the citizens of Northeast Texas and the Texas A&M University-Commerce community with entertaining, educational and informative programming. The station also serves as a learning environment for university students to pursue excellence in radio broadcasting.

All of the things we set out to do, whether it's helping to publicize your event, keeping you abreast of the weather, relaying up-to-the-minute local news, contributing to your 'nationally informed' status with Morning Edition and All Things Considered, or even teaching and training the next generation of radio broadcasters... It's all bolstered by an operational budget provided by the Friends of KETR. YOU are the PUBLIC in PUBLIC RADIO.

Please make your contribution right away. Click here for the quick 2-minute form, and help secure KETR's place on the air in Northeast Texas. Give now, give generously, and thank you.
