Ethical Guidelines

Wisconsin Public Radio and PBS Wisconsin regularly review their institutional editorial ethics framework. Public radio and public television journalists and managers created a statement of our values and broad directions in a document known as “Principles of Editorial Integrity.” We have  adapted and embraced this document as the framework for the specific guidance contained in our own WPR and PBS Wisconsin Editorial Integrity Policies and Editorial Practices.

Financial Statements

Each year the financial statements of WHA Radio, a department of Wisconsin Public Media at University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board are audited by an independent auditor.

For more information on the audit and Annual Financial Report filed by the ECB, visit the Resources page on ecb.org.
