Corrections & Clarifications

WUNC aims to provide consistently high quality public service programming presented with integrity. Correcting our mistakes is an essential element of that integrity. WUNC editors will determine when a mistake needs to be corrected or a story needs to be clarified. Digital versions of the story will be corrected or clarified and a note of the correction placed at the bottom of the text. Those stories will also appear on this page. Broadcast corrections will occur as soon as possible and/or at a similar time of day as the original broadcast at the discretion of WUNC editors.

To request a correction, please email or call 919-445-9150 or 800-962-9862.
