Claude Kistler Legacy Fund
Claude Kistler was general manager of KSPS for 33 years. At his retirement in 2013, the Claude Kistler Legacy Fund for Regional Programming was created to honor his incredible legacy.
The purpose of the fund is to provide dollars for regional programs produced by KSPS. Claude’s passion over the years was always the creation of programs that reflect and support the communities of KSPS—regular programs such as Northwest Profiles (on the air for over 25 years!) and Health Matters; historical documentaries about our region including Calgary and Edmonton Remembered, Spokane's Nat Park, The Davenport Hotel, David Thompson and many others; town hall meetings and debates that encourage civic engagement; and documentaries on issues that affect us all. He has always been a tireless advocate for television that improves our lives.
The Claude Kistler Legacy Fund for Regional Programing provides funds to create new programming for and about our region.
