KUER's Mission Statement
It is our fundamental belief that information and public engagement enrich a community. To that end, KUER is intensely committed to building a community of world citizens through story and art, discussion and debate, sound and creativity. Our work is driven by our Public Service Mission: KUER enhances the lives of its audience with a blend of news, information and entertainment in an unbiased, non-commercial context and creates an ongoing source of service and support vital to community organizations.
In 2013, KUER asked local artists to design our new hoodie with the following prompt: What does KUER mean to you? We received so many incredible designs that we decided to feature the runner-ups in our 2013 annual report. With this 2013 annual report, you will see the designs featured on each month of the calendar followed with a quote from the artist. Click here for the 2013 Annual Report.
