Statement of Purpose

North Country Public Radio informs, enriches and connects the region-on air, online and in our communities.

NCPR Core Values

These values inspire and shape our work:
From the mind… a commitment to lifelong learning, fairness, accuracy, honesty, substance, credibility, purpose, and respect for the people who use our services.
From the craft… a love of unique human voices, voices that are conversational, authentic, intimate; an attention to the details of music, sound elements, language, pace and writing.
From the heart and spirit… idealism, humor; civility and a belief in civil discourse, generosity, inspiration about public life and culture, and the power to seek and find solutions.
NCPR Staff Based in Canton, NY, in St. Lawrence County, NCPR operates a network of 32 transmitters broadcasting to the entire Adirondack North Country, western Vermont and southeastern Ontario. The commercial-free format includes a wide variety of programs from National Public Radio including All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Fresh Air and more. NCPR's award-winning news team can be heard weekdays at 8:00 am with regional news broadcasts, features and interviews. The station also airs an eclectic mix of locally-hosted music programs.

Donations from listeners sustain our day-to-day operation. In fact, the single largest segment of our funding comes from household members and regional businesses. Total community giving exceeds $1.3 million annually.

In addition to North Country Public Radio's on-air signal, the station operates a comprehensive website, and is the emergency broadcast service for many communities in the region.
