QUESTION: How do you find out information about who funds public radio?

question / pregunta: 

How much public information is available on what companies are underwriting public radio? I was looking at NPR's IRS 990 on Guidestar, but it doesn't list any kind of breakdown as to how it is underwritten. Is this public info?


Have you had a look at NPR's finances page? You can grab pdfs of their financial statements going back five years at the bottom of the page, plus ten years of annual reports and donor lists.

Incidentally, the United States Army is a 2010 corporate sponsor. Hello, National Pentagon Radio!

Local stations like WAMU in DC provide their annual reports, as well.
