Serve in the Public’s Interest

One of the biggest responsibilities we have at KWTS is to serve in the public’s interest, and we take that very seriously. However, we don’t just serve the public inside the station. We volunteer our time and participate in many community service events. Most recently, we teamed up with the National Broadcasting Society to help out Family Support Services in Amarillo.

Every year Family Support Services hosts a Mardi Gras celebration. They have Cajun food, music, dancing, a casino, auctions, and beads, of course. All the money raised at the event goes to Family Support Services. Our staff and members of NBS took on all kinds of roles at the event. Some served food or drinks. Others cleaned off tables, and some even facilitated the games in the casino! It’s always a lot of work, but it is worth it and fun!

Coming up, we are going to participate in highway cleanup. We adopted a stretch of highway just south of Canyon, and we always keep it clean! Remember, Don’t mess with Texas! Then, we have signed up to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in Amarillo. It’s always rewarding to participate in community service. It’s great to know we are making a difference. Our broadcast engineer, Johnny Story, said it well, “When you don’t have money to give, give your time.”
