Progress is reported in a lawsuit filed by WNIN against a long-time neighbor.

Tri-State Public Media is suing Pearl Laundry and Cleaners, which has operated inside a large brick building on NW Third St. in Downtown Evansville for more than a century.

Over the years, the operation has produced a plume of underground contamination that reaches into WNIN’s property under the Carpenter House.

WNIN is attempting to sell the historic home as part of the move to a new location at Main and Riverside.

WNIN has launched its Move to Main capital campaign.

The station plans to move to the former WEVV building at Main and Riverside at a cost of $3.4 million.

A “quiet campaign” that’s drawn mostly on corporate support has already raised more than half of the needed money.

Now, the campaign is shifting to a public, community-wide effort.

During a news conference, USI President – and WNIN Board Chair – Linda Bennett asked board members to join her at the podium. 

She said the board was behind the Move to Main 100%.

  In 2017, WNIN is making a transformational change that reflects the area’s progress and growth.  By this fall, WNIN will be in a new building with much better facilities to serve our Tri-State community.

WNIN's Steve Burger talked with WNIN president and CEO Brad Kimmel about the timing of the move and the reason for the campaign.

SB:  “I’m Steve Burger, here with WNIN President and CEO Brad Kimmel to talk about the Move to Main capital campaign. What is that?”

WNIN is planning to move to Evansville’s riverfront.

Tri-State Public Media has purchased the former WEVV building at Riverside and Main through a donor relationship.

A capital campaign is underway to raise money to pay for the building, to renovate it, and to add new digital equipment. 

President and CEO Brad Kimmel says he’s “excited” to move the operation to the “heart of downtown” and to better engage the public and better serve the community.

Kimmel says the capital campaign will go public this spring and more details will be released then.
