Ever wonder if there’s a way to get a sneak peek of what’s airing on KAMU-TV and KAMU-FM? There is… and it’s free!
At the beginning of every month, we compile the best upcoming TV and FM programming and send a free email newsletter to our subscribers. It’s a great way to stay up to date on your favorite returning shows, learn about new ones and keep in touch with what’s happening at Aggieland’s Public Television and Radio.
We know you might be wary of adding another email to your inbox that’s likely already overflowing with promotional emails. That’s why we’ve put together this newsletter preview: to give you a taste of exactly what you get when you sign up. There are no gimmicks here – just programs we enjoy that we think you will, too. And you can opt-out at any time.
*Note: for a screen-reader-friendly version of this newsletter preview, please check out this accessible newsletter example from 2023.
Each newsletter starts with the most important thing we want you to know about the upcoming month. Last September, for example, we featured the Season 2 premiere of our KAMU original show, “Texas A&M Today.”
We provide a few notes and an airtime, if applicable. We add several links for the program, content or announcement to help you learn more.
Letter to Aggieland
Each month, a member of the KAMU team writes a short letter to our audience. We want you to get to know our people and what they do.
Tune in to Watch
Next, you’ll receive several recommendations for shows to watch on KAMU-TV. Our selections vary across genres and airtimes in an effort to suggest something for everyone. Once again, we’ll provide a few notes, the show’s airdate and time, and a link or two if you want to learn more. For example, last fall, one of these sections featured two breathtaking nature shows.
Tune in to Listen
If you’re a KAMU-FM fan, this section is for you. Although our radio lineup doesn’t change as much as our TV lineup, we always have one or two recommendations or announcements to share. Sometimes it’s about a show we think you’ll like and other times it’s a reminder of new ways you can engage with KAMU-FM and KAMU-Classical/HD-2. We’ll provide a few notes, the airdate and time, if applicable, and a link or two for learning more.
KAMU in the Community
We love seeing our Brazos Valley community at local events. In this section, you’ll find a brief schedule of the events KAMU is attending each month. We’ll provide a day, the location, the name of the event and a link where you can find the time and other important details. Come out and see us!
Featured Shows in KAMU Passport
Our newsletter wraps up with three staff picks for exciting shows to watch on KAMU Passport. These are a mix of already popular shows that you can binge immediately and new, niche shows that we think you might enjoy. You can gain access to Passport by donating at least $5 per month or $60 per year — unlocking our monthly picks and thousands more.
The monthly newsletter is the best of KAMU-TV and KAMU-FM in one free email, sent once a month. No need to search through our schedule or website or resort to Google to find answers about what to watch. We keep it simple and give you the information you need to know about each show and announcement we’re making. It’s our way to say thank you to our donors, subscribers and fans across the Brazos Valley.
