Message to Our Members This month we’re excited to launch our new brand – a new name and a new look! Beginning May 15, NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, will become Nebraska Public Media. We are still the same organization and remain committed to bringing you the same programs and services you trust and depend on every day. Media choices have exploded and become more fragmented since our last brand refresh more than 10 years ago. As we look toward the future, competition for audiences and support for our network will become even more competitive. It’s important that we are easily recognizable anywhere, on every media platform. Sometimes our audiences don’t realize it’s us they are watching or hearing. Unfortunately, our current brand also spells a word – NET – which presents confusion in many areas, especially online. As our recent research revealed, some potential audiences even thought we were an internet company. As people, particularly those from younger generations, access more content on mobile devices and through social media, their experience with our brand is inconsistent. In order to retain our existing audiences, attract new audiences, increase financial support and ensure the future of public media

2

in Nebraska, we must have a consistent, easily-recognizable brand across all media environments. On May 15, you’ll see and hear changes across our television and radio channels, as well as our social media platforms, print pieces and on our mobile app. You’ll also find a completely revised, mobilefriendly website with clearly defined topic areas and schedules for our television and radio channels. The “search” function is especially impressive! We are excited to launch our new updated brand and I’d love to know what you think. Please drop me an email at dhamlett@netnebraska.org. I’m fortunate to receive notes and phone calls hearing first-hand how our work affects you. Thank you for your ongoing support. You can’t imagine what a difference it has made, especially during the past year. We’re honored to serve you and our communities each day with conversations that connect and empower all Nebraskans. With appreciation,

Debbie Hamlett

Chief Strategy Officer, Development & Marketing Proud Member


Watching television isn’t like it was when we first signed on the air in 1954. Today, there are more media choices and channels than anyone could ever have imagined. Through the years, we added radio, a website, three more TV channels, on-demand programming and apps, digital content and social media accounts to serve our audiences no matter where or how they interact with us. For almost 70 years, we’ve offered Nebraskans educational and entertaining programs, fed curious minds and told stories from the places you call home. And, now, we’re changing our name to better reflect who we are across multiple media platforms. Beginning May 15, NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, will be Nebraska Public Media. You’ll see our new name on television, hear it on the radio and find it when you click on our content. Things may look a little different, but you can be confident that our commitment to bring you trusted news, safe programs for your children and exciting sports remains the same.

Connecting and Empowering Every Nebraskan nebraskapublicmedia.org

In some way, everyone in Nebraska is impacted by mental health issues, medical conditions that make it difficult for people to cope with ordinary life. And, the pandemic has made it even more difficult for many people to manage their feelings. During the past year, we’ve presented three virtual WELL BEINGS events to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of depression, anxiety and suicide, as well as how mental health affects those in communities of color. Featuring expert guidance, each of the three programs is available for viewing on the WELL BEINGS webpage, along with links to community resources.

“The music spoke to him and became a lifelong love for him,” said Jeanne, his wife and other lifelong love. The couple married in 1966 and were seldom apart before Jim passed away in Nov. 2020.

MUSIC ACCOMPANIED FARMER’S LIFE Jim Walter learned to be a farmer. Long before that, he learned to love classical music.

Jim was part of a team of volunteers who personally donated, solicited funds and made public radio in his community a reality. “The district I was calling was the Sandhills south of Gordon and I couldn’t believe the support that came from those ranchers,” Jim wrote in his personal memoirs.

“All of our radios are set to 91.5,” said Jeanne. “If you want something else, you When radio station KRNE, Merriman was dedicated on have to change it.” Aug. 29. 1991, he combined The couple left Berkley, the two, listening to his Calif., and Jim’s mechanical beloved classical music engineering and research on NET while driving the career behind in 1975, tractor in his fields along moving their three the Niobrara River near children and menagerie of Gordon, Neb. animals to the wide open,

less populated spaces of Nebraska. They raised wheat, corn and alfalfa for their cattle after taking over the family operation. Jim first encountered classical music in college in Wisconsin, listening as he studied. On a date, he discovered ballet, his favorite performing art. Opera became his second after attending a performance with a friend. “I was hooked,” Jim wrote in his memoirs. In the tractor, woodworking or tinkering in his shop, music was the accompaniment to his day. A 2013 letter that accompanied a donation to NET summed up Jim’s thoughts. “It’s hard to put into words how I feel about Nebraska public radio. Coming home from Denver last month as we crossed the Nebraska border and were able to get NPR, I thought, ‘Ah, I’m home.’”

Starting July 1, our two foundations will merge, creating the Nebraska Public Media Foundation. Through June 30, 2021, your donations will still support our legal 501c3 nonprofits – the NET Foundation for Television (#23-7122088) and the NET Foundation for Radio (#47-0588533). No changes are needed on your part. Your donations will continue to support the same quality programming and organization. For more information about our network’s new name see the story on page 3!

Making Memorial Gifts to Honor Loved Ones Honoring a family member or friend by donating to charity in their memory is a meaningful way to pay tribute and show how someone lives on in your heart. If you know someone whose life has been touched by NET, we hope you'll consider making a gift in their honor.

There are two basic ways to establish an honorary gift: • Give Today

An outright gift can fund an immediate need or an upcoming project. The financial benefits to you include an income tax deduction and the possible elimination of capital gains taxes.

• Give Later

A future gift through your will or living trust can include a bequest stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount or a percentage of your estate will pass to NET at your death.

No matter which basic method you choose, you can make a gift that lasts forever – much like your memories. The principal amount remains intact, so the fund will support NET’s work in perpetuity.
