Two new voices have come aboard NPR’s two flagship newsmagazines! As of March, Ailsa Chang is hosting All Things Considered along with Audie Cornish, Mary Louise Kelly, and Ari Shapiro; and Noel King has joined David Greene, Steve Inskeep, and Rachel Martin as the fourth host of Morning Edition. Both award-winning journalists also are continuing to report and co-host for Planet Money. Ailsa Chang brings deep experience to her new post, with a career at NPR including work with Planet Money along with a strong record as a congressional correspondent for the Washington desk. She says, “In my time as a radio journalist, the two things I have loved most are long-form reporting and live hosting. Now I get to take on a job that blends these two worlds.” Noel King comes to her new role with a long history of making complex financial stories relatable to public radio listeners at Planet Money and other public radio programs. She has also served as a fill-in n at Weekend All Things Ki el No Considered and 1A in her tenure at NPR. She notes, “Every day, the team at Morning Edition is on the front lines of breaking news. We live in complicated times, and I am genuinely excited to be given the chance to ask questions of leaders at the centers of power, while also shining a spotlight on ordinary people who are affected by the decisions those leaders make.” g

Chang and King Become Everyday Voices of NPR

NPR news chief Chris Turpin says, “Bringing Noel and Ailsa to our newsmagazines is an investment in the future of the programs, which are standard-bearers for public radio and essential listening for millions of people every week. The move adds fresh voices to our host lineup, giving each program the bench strength needed for every host to periodically pursue stories around the world. In doing so, we continue to bring our listeners the timely, live, on-location reporting that widens perspectives and engages audiences.” We hope that in time, you come to regard these new NPR hosts as old friends.

The first episode, The Second Moment of Creation, explores the origins of art, with the first known etchings made by early humans. It tracks this evidence of the origin of human creativity to over 70,000 years ago. It also explores how over tens of thousands of years, this impulse evolved into painted and sculpted depictions of the animal world, and eventually of the human form itself.

Tuesday, April 17 and 24 at 8 pm Behold the global history of art—from the dawn of history to the present day. This ninepart series travels across the world to reveal the common thread in the role that art and the creative imagination played and continues to play across cultures. From the great mosques of Istanbul, to the sculptures of the Olmecs, to the landscape scrolls of classical China, this program visits some of the world’s greatest treasures. Other topics covered include the representation of

April Taxes: Money Back in Your Pocket April showers may bring May flowers, but the month also brings the task of filing income taxes by Tax Day, Tuesday, April 17th this year. Most of us prefer to take advantage of our charitable contributions on our federal income tax return, but we may not have enough deductions to itemize under the new tax rules. If that describes your situation, you should know about a program that allows a state tax credit for contributions made to an eligible Indiana state college. Page 10 / April 2018

the human body in art, how the art of different cultures interacted with one another, and the nature of “renaissances” and what they mean around the world. Viewers will be able to experience an in-depth immersion in the extraordinary locations and treasures of six different continents, with the help of the macro-photography and the state-of-the art drone and camera movement technology used to celebrate the detail and craftsmanship of the world’s artists like never before.

Since Indiana University is a state college, and because WFIU is licensed to Indiana University, your contributions to WFIU qualify under this program. If, for example, you were to make a $400 gift to WFIU, you could claim a $200 tax credit on your Indiana state taxes (if you file jointly), and up to $100 in credit on a $200 gift if you file singly. That credit comes right off the top of what you owe in state taxes. Take advantage of this tax benefit simply by filing Form CC-40 with your state taxes. It’s money back in your pocket.

The human form is examined with more depth in the following episode, How Do We Look? From the Terracotta Army of China to the Colossi of Ramses II in Egypt, the human form has been a dominant subject for artists throughout history. Each civilization and era, however, sees the meaning of this art differently. This series is inspired by Kenneth Clarke’s well-known 1969 series Civilisation on European art and is narrated by actor Liev Schreiber. Now, Civilizations will broaden the canvas to examine how the creative spirit allows humanity to express its most essential self, all around the world.

We’re always here to help you stand with the facts

Help WFIU, our community, and the environment!

Our world these days can be hard to make sense of. As you struggle to keep up and understand, we’re here with news from the region, nation, and the world that you can rely on. Conversely, you can count on us to give you a rest from the 24-hour news cycle with classical and jazz music that takes you out of time. Between WFIU and WFIU2, we’ve always got you covered.

Despite all the changes and all the uncertainty, we’re unwavering in our commitment to giving you the news and culture that connect Indiana with the world every day of the year, and that can’t be found anywhere else on the dial. Our weeklong on-air spring membership campaign gets underway on Tuesday, April 10. Perhaps you’ve not given in some time, or at any time, ever. Or, maybe you renewed in the fall, but would like to give a bit extra. Regardless, there’s always a place for you in the community of listeners who make public radio work. You can preview this spring’s slate of thank-you gifts within these pages, select one that looks good to you, and call us or go online to secure it for yourself. Or, if you wish, you can let all of your gift go toward our programming. Either way, please know it is your contribution that sustains WFIU … and ensures we can provide highquality content not only to our members, but also to anyone in our area who wishes to listen. Thank you for your support.

We are excited to announce a new partnership, “Fruitful Friday,” with the Bloomington Community Orchard during this month’s Fund Drive. The Bloomington Community Orchard is an organization devoted to sustainable food security and fulfills this mission by planting trees in and around the Monroe County area. The publiclyowned orchard is maintained by volunteers and the harvest is available to everyone in the community. And, for every pledge made to WFIU on Friday, April 13, the Bloomington Community Orchard will donate and plant a fruit tree in South Central Indiana. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in the planting of a portion of those trees on the first day of fall in September! Volunteers from the Bloomington Community Orchard will also be answering our pledge phones on throughout Fruitful Friday. We will also have members of their Board of Directors at the station doing special Facebook Live events to discuss their collaboration with the City of Bloomington to add a nut grove to the orchard this year! We hope you’ll consider donating to WFIU on Fruitful Friday to sustain both local public radio and food security for our community. You’ll do an incredible amount of good with just one gift!
