Who is New England Public Radio?

New England Public Radio provides an essential and trusted voice for the region through local reporting and locally-produced music programming; and by connecting the region to the world through its partnership with NPR and other national and international public media organizations.

Its flagship signal, 88.5FM WFCR, presents news, jazz and classical music, while the NEPR News Network provides the region with news, talk and cultural programming. Off-air, NEPR strives to connect with our community through vibrant public events that bring people together to tell the story of who we are, where we live, and what’s next for our region.

Who is our audience?

Our audience includes community leaders, business owners and knowledgeable consumers. NEPR listeners are educated and engaged – much more so than the general population. And they are loyal: a wide majority of public radio listeners prefer to buy products and services from businesses that support public radio through underwriting and event sponsorships.
