Our Story


Who is New England Public Radio?

Listener-supported New England Public Radio has been serving the people of western New England since 1961, providing 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 a 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.

The mission of New England Public Radio Foundation, Inc. is to conduct special fund raising and development activities that support WFCR's public service mission and continued viability as a public radio and media organization.
