2012 was a milestone year for KDHX. We celebrated 25 years of serving Saint Louis and reached new heights in programming excellence and member support. We’ve captured the highlights in this annual report. The MISSION of KDHX is to build community through media. The core VALUES of KDHX are community, independence, entertainment, diversity, creative expression, and localism. Andrea host of Radio Rio and Chris Lawyer host of Hip City Photo credit: Roy Kasten

LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR This past October, KDHX celebrated 25 years on the air. It was a celebration of this great experiment in community radio that started here more than 40 years ago. The folks that made KDHX possible believed then, as we know now, that a radio station that is reflective of and responsive to its community can succeed. KDHX has done more than succeed - it has thrived, growing into so much more than a radio station. KDHX is a valued and vital community institution that presents and promotes the arts and culture of Saint Louis. I’m proud to introduce this 2012 Annual Report, which gives a great snapshot of the work that KDHX has done over the last year. Of course, we couldn’t do it without our loyal members, volunteers, board, staff and institutions that make all this possible. Thank you.

Beverly Hacker, Executive Director
