Lyda Hill is known for being partial to orange, but she should be wearing Santa Claus red and white since she’s becoming the gift giver of Dallas.
It was just announced that Lyda’s foundation has given $1 million to KERA for the expansion of its regional news coverage.
It was just last year that she provided funding for “news reporting, coverage and programs about health and science on KERA. That gift supported the weekly Health Checkup segment with Sam Baker. . . [and] two KERA-FM special series on cutting-edge research, Going Green: The Practical Payoffs and the award-winning Engineering Hope.”
Lyda explained, “As a KERA viewer, listener and donor, I recognized the importance of funding such a vital community resource. This gift is also meant to inspire others to support the kind of local news stories and reporting not found anywhere else in North Texas.”
