Our Mission: Nevada Public Radio will be recognized as the leading independent source of information and cultural expression, and a catalyst for civic engagement.

Nevada Public Radio connects you to so much more than your favorite NPR programming like Morning Edition and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. We don’t just wake up your smart  . . . we’re the “loudspeaker” for our community!

News 88.9 KNPR is where you learn about the issues that are most important to your community. Whether that’s in a discussion on KNPR’s State of Nevada, or on air announcements that raise awareness for cultural events or the efforts of vital organizations addressing the key challenges of our region. Each year we give back $1M of airtime in on air messaging to other non-profit organizations. Just last fall we partnered with Three Square in our fall drive to generate 35,000+ meals – that’s the power of the public radio audience!

News 88.9 KNPR and Classical 89.7 are key connectors for our community and when you support Nevada Public Radio you also support every other non-profit that matters to you.  So join the Big Give, support Nevada Public Radio and know your dollars will insure that we can continue to be a “loudspeaker” for awareness for the impact of the charities closest to your heart.
