Heard Up North

More Heard Up North features

Connecting with Heard Up North:

Nora Flaherty and other NCPR reporters call out to people in communties all over the region to get a first-person take on what is happening that day in one of the nooks and crannies of the North Country, or to share one of the unique voices that contribute to the choir that is our region.

The program is looking for individuals who can fill the bill in their community--the unofficial mayors of unincorporated villages, the diner counter know-it-alls, the barbershop networkers, the contrarian librarians. If you know someone whose tongue is well-strung, drop Nora a line.
