WKAR at Michigan State University is excited to partner with the East Lansing Public Library to present Tim Busfields's 2nd Annual Performing Arts Warm Up. This event will be on September 10 & 11 in the WKAR Studios in the Communication Arts & Sciences Building on MSU Campus. This workshop is for youth interested in acting, singing, dancing, playwriting, screen writing, directing, stage managing, set making and the general making of films.

Yes, I know it is only August. It is still hot and the idea of cold and snow is just too much to think about right now. Yet, for us at WKAR the holiday season is upon us.

One of the may things we at WKAR look forward to each year is the airing of WKAR's Emmy Award winning broadcast of Silver Bells In the City's Electric Light Parade. This year will be the 5th year that WKAR airs this special live broadcast with our very own Susi Elkins hosting along with Fox-47's Bob Hoffman, and WLNZ's Mark Buzzita.

Thank you to all of WKAR's corporate supporters!

Below you will find a list of corporate supporters, along with a direct link to their website, that have invested more than $5,000 to help keep WKAR's great TV & Radio programs on air.   When looking to make purchasing decisions in the near future, please look to these businesses!

Michigan State University and WKAR-TV have put the power of information in the hands of Flint residents through a new tool that navigates community resources in the wake of the ongoing water crisis.

The mobile app "Empower Flint" provides a checklist of important actions people can take to protect themselves, their families and pets as they battle elevated lead levels in the water supply. Released March 1, the app was developed by a team of researchers and specialists from MSU, the College of Communication Arts and Sciences, and WKAR-TV in collaboration with the people of Flint.

Spring is in the air! The birds are chirping, grass is green and WKAR's Annual Spring On-Air Fundraising Campaign is right around the corner!

This year our campaign will be April 12 through 18. There are a number of ways that your business can be involved.

WKAR TV SAVED!

Jan 13, 2016

First of all, I want to thank YOU! You the community, the business leaders and the voices of the mid-Michigan community. The voices that made all of this happen.

I hope you heard that President Simon announced Monday, Jan. 11 that MSU will NOT participate in the FCC Broadcast Incentive Auction. This means that WKAR-TV will retain its broadcast spectrum and the station will be here to serve you.
