Supporters from across Southern California turned out in force to join us at our SCPR Community Open House.

The mission of Southern California Public Radio is to strengthen the civic and cultural bonds that unite Southern California’s diverse communities by providing the highest quality news and information service through radio and other interactive media. We will be a public forum that engages its audiences in an ongoing dialogue and exploration of issues, events and cultures in the region and in the world, seeking to provide greater understanding and new perspectives to the people of these communities and their leaders.

2 SCPR 2016 Annual Report

Friends, Looking back on 2016, it’s become fashionable for news media outlets to say that their content “is important now more than ever.” Not at SCPR. Our combination of in-depth, fact-based journalism and inclusive civic engagement has always been important and it will always remain important. SCPR’s audiences have always understood this. And, therefore, our audiences are among the most remarkable in all of media. SCPR’s audiences range from kids in the back seat of their parents’ cars to centenarians who were born before the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920; from immigrants who are new to our country to people who can trace their ancestry to indigenous tribes that antedate the arrival of Europeans; across economic, ethnic, cultural, religious, and political lines. This disparate group of Angelenos shares a common set of traits: curiosity, a commitment to life-long learning, a deep respect for others, and a desire to improve the quality of civic and cultural life in one of the world’s most diverse metropolises. At SCPR, we routinely remind ourselves that we must “hold up an accurate mirror to the imperfect paradise” that is greater Los Angeles if we are to fully realize the potential of our public service mission. On any given day, the exercise of our craft requires facility in dozens of languages, analysis of emerging economic and cultural trends, political acumen, command of legacy broadcast and emerging digital technologies, and a willingness to listen to you. When you add your voice to the conversation — whether it’s calling into Larry Mantle’s AirTalk or posting a comment on our website or sharing a story we’ve done on social media or telling a co-worker at the water cooler “I heard this story on KPCC today” — you help us further a mission that is unique in Southern California. And, as other media struggle to remain connected to LA, the connection you make with us each and every day improves the quality of our journalism and strengthens the civic fabric of the community we share. “Join us.” It’s a phrase you often hear during our programming, whether it’s asking you to tune into The Frame, attend an In Person event or check out something interesting on our mobile digital platform. “Join us” is an invitation, of course, not a command. But it’s more than just an invitation. When we ask you to “join us,” it’s an acknowledgment that your knowledge and your insights and your perspectives are integral to our understanding of Southern California. When you “join us,” you help strengthen the bonds that unite us as Angelenos and as Americans. On behalf of the SCPR Board of Trustees, our employees and our audiences, thank you for joining us in 2016. We look forward to joining you in 2017 and beyond. Sincerely,

Ana Valdez, Chair

Bill Davis, President

She decided early on that her focus would be growing a company built on a promise of integrity, and she hears that same commitment in SCPR’s coverage. “Being honest and transparent is the key to this company, just the way it is at KPCC,” she says. “The programming is unbiased and exposes you to so many interesting things.” That exposure, notes Greg, is essential to the value SCPR brings to the community. “When I was a kid, we had cohesive neighborhoods, and you would really get to know the people around you. Today, that’s the role KPCC plays, breaking us out of our isolated bubbles and introducing us to the world.” Rail Delivery Services carries

The James Irvine Foundation: Ensuring that California Counts Fueling the growth of Southern California Public Radio’s dynamic news and public affairs reporting is a critical partnership with The James Irvine Foundation, one of California’s most distinguished philanthropic organizations. The foundation made its first grant to SCPR in 2000 and has contributed several million dollars during the past 16 years. This year, the foundation provided funding for a unique collaboration between SCPR and three other public radio stations in the state: KQED in San Francisco, KPBS in San Diego and Capital Public Radio in Sacramento. Known as California Counts, the joint initiative enabled the stations to pool resources and share coverage related to the 2016 elections. “We did a lot of planning and coordination of stories on statewide races and propositions,” says Melanie Sill, SCPR’s vice

Remembering Steve Julian Last April, SCPR mourned the passing of KPCC Morning Edition host Steve Julian, 57, due to complications from brain cancer. For 15 years, Julian was a loyal morning companion for tens of thousands of listeners across Southern California. He also had a busy second career in theater as a playwright, actor and director. “Steve was a singular talent,” recalls Larry Mantle, host of KPCC’s AirTalk. “He is completely irreplaceable.” Below, Mantle offers a look at an exceptional colleague and an extraordinary friend. I met Steve in early 1983, after I was hired to anchor the afternoon drive-time news block at CBS-affiliate KPRO radio in Riverside. Steve was working there in production, and we hit it off right away. Noticing our easy rapport, the news director asked me if I would like to have Steve coanchor with me. I thought it was a great idea, and though he had never done news before, Steve’s naturally strong radio presence allowed him to connect with listeners immediately. We kept in touch when I left for KPCC. For a time, Steve took a break from radio, deciding to follow in his father’s
