Mission Statement

The purpose of the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting is to establish and maintain a permanent collection of materials relating to the history, development and contribution of radio and television in Iowa, housed at Wartburg College. 

The electronic information era which was born and developed in the 20th century and is being carried forward in the 21st century rests on a foundation of radio and television experience. A significant part of that early experience took place in the state of Iowa. It is important that this history be preserved and made accessible for current and future study.

The Archives of Iowa Broadcasting are dedicated to that objective.

History of the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting

The Archives of Iowa Broadcasting was founded in 1995 by Grant Price, a long time television and radio broadcaster.
