It costs nearly $1 million to maintain our news service to public media. Are you ready to do your part to “Keep Current?”

Current has partnered with a company called Wallit to facilitate your access to our news site and process payment for individual subscriptions.

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 to Current. This enables blanket digital access for all staffers and provides your company with an exclusive 15% discount on employment ads posted at  And now, all subscribers have access to 10 digital flipbook editions of our print version of Current.

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, give us a shout and we’ll help out.

Some organizations purchase subscriptions for a handful of staff. If you’re in that privileged group, let your manager 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:

Universal Subscriptions

Current’s Universal Access plan enables stations to provide Current to all of their employees at the lowest possible price per person. The cost to stations 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.) Universal subscriber stations may receive up to 50 copies of Current in print. Another benefit of this station-wide site license: 15% discount on all job postings at 

Board members, however, are not automatically included in the Universal Subscription. Stations may purchase print + digital subscriptions for their board members at the full individual rate ($99 each) or extend digital-only access for their entire board of directors for $500 per year. Current is no longer mailing print copies to individual board members at a reduced rate.

Stations may pay for their group, universal or board subscriptions by credit card or through the mail. Please note that digital access may not be granted until full payment is received.
