OUR STORY Love, Tito’s is a movement of individuals giving back to causes, efforts and organizations united under the goal to turn spirits into love and goodness. In 1997 Tito was asked to donate product for a local nonprofit fundraiser. Onsite, he told attendees: “If you like it, tell 20 of your closest friends.” And they did just that — not only about the vodka, but also about how Tito would support charitable events. The phone started to ring more often, and Tito’s fell into the “charity event” business. Through Love, Tito’s, the team has supported thousands of causes. You can check out more about Love, Tito’s on our website: lovetitos.com

89.3 Public Radio

The Public’s Radio

If you are looking for a news outlet without an agenda, you can stop. Because you will never find one.
Every organization serves somebody. Including us. Fortunately, the people we serve are, well, you. We are public radio after all. We don’t answer to shareholders, political interests, ratings, or clicks. We answer to our community. A group with endlessly different backgrounds, ideals, and perspectives—all facing issues too important to be summed up in soundbites and tweets. Yet that’s exactly what’s happening. Complex issues are being misrepresented as simple and, in turn, our community’s beautiful shades of grey are being painted black and white. But the world isn’t that simple. Luckily, neither are you. That’s why we don’t tell you what to think. When a news organization does that they aren’t serving you, they’re serving themselves. Instead, we give options, not answers. We provide data, not conclusions. Our stories are not the end of the conversation; they are the beginning. And these conversations are the connective tissue that shapes our community. That’s why we must ensure that all of our community has a voice. After all, to truly serve the public we do not get to choose which parts to serve. Because we aren’t just Public Radio, we are The Public’s Radio.
