Katy Anderson

Programming & Operations Director, Acting News Director

Katy manages programming operations and helps direct and produce on-air talent for 89.1 WBOI and 94.1 WBNI.   She has lived in Fort Wayne for most of her life and is a graduate of IPFW where she studied political science and journalism.  Though her interests and background in non-profits and public policy were what initially brought her to NIPR, she quickly found herself drawn to public radio programming and audience research.  Anderson is a strong believer in centering programming on listeners, and oversaw the station’s major programming changes over the past six years years. She's also helped produce award-winning, community-oriented news programming on WBOI.

Essential maintenance is causing 89.1 WBOI to be off the air  this afternoon.

This may impact listening for up to three hours, but the time and the length of these interruptions could change based on weather and other conditions.

Remember that you can listen to 89.1 WBOI online anytime at wboi.org, and on our app for Apple and Android devices (search your app store for NIPR).

Thanks for listening to and supporting 89.1 WBOI!

On Monday night, the Fort Wayne Community Schools Board passed a resolution stating the board would no longer publicly recognize the statewide A-F performance system to determine schools' achievement.

Fort Wayne Community Schools board president Mark GiaQuinta about why they are abandoning this system and the impact it may have on their schools.

Cinema Center in downtown Fort Wayne is known for showing movies you might not see elsewhere – everything from old classics, to indie films, and documentaries, to name a few. 

On Friday, Cinema Center patrons will see those movies in a new way: the theater has made the transition to digital projection.

That means no film, no reels, and no moving parts in the projection booth.

The change might seem small, but it means better picture quality and a wider selection of films for movie-goers.
