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%.

WNIN planning move to Main and Riverside

Jan 20, 2017

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.
