Current has partnered with a company called Wallit to facilitate your access to our news site, process payment for individual subscriptions and help Current sustain our service to public media.

Many public radio and TV station leaders recognize that Current is an important professional benefit and information source for their employees regardless of seniority.  These stations opt for our lowest cost per person option: the Universal Subscription.

The Universal subscription gives all staffers unlimited digital access to and online flip book editions of our printed publications. Universal subscriber stations  can receive as many paper copies as they want. They also get an exclusive 15% discount on employment ads posted at (Ask us for the coupon code!)

Check out the full list of Universal subscribers to see if your company is on board. If so, try logging in to Wallit using your company email address. If that doesn’t work, we can help!

Some organizations purchase subscriptions for a handful of staff. Ask your manager if your station subscribes. Let her/him/them know that Current is important to your work and ask to be included in the company subscription.

And, remember, you can always buy a personal subscription for yourself! To do so, click on one of the links below:

Institutional subscriptions

Current offers a 25% discount to public radio and TV stations and active advertisers that purchase digital access for FIVE or more individuals ($74.25 per person). Stations opting for a group subscription can receive the same number (or fewer) paper copies of Current. Just let us know how many you want!

Universal Subscriptions

The cost for this company-wide site license is based on the number of employees on your payroll (not the number of individuals who say they want access – that would be a group sub.)

Board members, however, are not automatically included in the Universal Subscription. Stations may purchase print + digital subscriptions for board members at the full individual rate ($99 each) if you want papers mailed to individual board member addresses. Or, extend digital-only access to your entire board of directors for $500 per year.

Stations may pay for their group, universal or board subscriptions by credit card or through the mail.
