WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Public Radio (NPR) produces and broadcasts daily news programs on-air and online, which examine issues affecting communities, the nation, and the world. NPR's mission is to create a more informed citizenry, providing listeners with a deeper understanding of events, ideas, and cultures. Its flagship daily news programs, Morning Edition and All Things Considered, currently reach a weekly audience of 24 million Americans on 975 stations, and a digital audience of 20 million each month. This grant will support NPR's news programs and initiatives to expand digital delivery and reach new audiences.
