New England Public Radio and WGBY Public Television today announced they are joining to create a robust new multi-media organization, New England Public Media (NEPM), with one of the largest newsrooms in western Massachusetts. With a goal of expanding public media offerings for the people of western New England, NEPM will build on the strength of each organization to deliver the trusted educational content, cultural and news programs, and community engagement that characterizes public media.

Congratulations to the Recipients of the 2019 NEPR Arts & Humanities Awards:

New England Public Radio is partnering with Dakin Humane Society for a special new community campaign that empowers public radio contributors to do twice as much good with their contribution to NEPR!

During our Feed Your Radio, Feed a Pet campaign, your contribution not only supports the programming you rely on each day, it will also send 5 meals to Dakin’s Pet Food Aid Program, which gives pet food folks in our community who could use a hand feeding their pets.
