NCPR is supported by:

In the belief that public broadcasters should occupy a place at the center of civic discourse, NCPR Online provides a home for a wide-ranging examination of issues and interests of concern to North Country communities. We have partnered with educational institutions and other public-speaking venues in the region to collect and archive lectures, addresses and discussions of public importance, and spoken-word performances of lasting value.
