Local public radio station faces possible budget cuts - JASON MORROW, Paducah Sun

With cuts in the federal budget looming, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting could be one of the first to get the ax. For WKMS-FM in Murray, the cut might be crippling. During the WKMS Community Advisory Board meeting Monday at the Paducah School of Art and Design, station manager Chad Lampe said nearly 15 percent of their budget comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which totals around $184,000. "These things have been targeted before and discussed before by way of federal cuts," Lampe said in an interview before the meeting. "They tend to stand the test of time, but this is an unprecedented administration."
