Chicago Public Media’s Leadership Council

WBEZ Next was established in 2020 in order to create a network of dedicated public media champions who serve as trusted ambassadors and supporters of Chicago Public Media (CPM). Comprised of business and civic leaders who bring insights from their respective fields, WBEZ Next members work to strengthen the mission of CPM by lending their expertise, engaging their personal networks and providing philanthropic support.

WBEZ Next Mission

WBEZ Next creates a link between the station and a diverse group of public media champions who go beyond philanthropic giving by offering their time, expertise, and network to sustain the mission and work of WBEZ.

WBEZ Next Membership

WBEZ Next members commit to a two-year renewable membership period, with a minimum philanthropic contribution throughout each two-year period to the WBEZ Next Annual Fund.
