A big THANK YOU! to all our friends and supporters


North Country Public Radio listeners took us further in less time than in any previous spring fundraiser. And we did it together–without interrupting programs. You kept us on course.

We’re all trying to make sense of a changing political landscape, social upheaval, an often divided nation. Our job is to provide you with reliable information about the world around us so that you can navigate the best route for yourself and your community. I think we’ve all come to understand that reliable information is harder to come by than it used to be. It takes a lot of work from solid journalists.

We’re all trying to find a connection with the people around us. It’s called community. When NCPR is doing its job, we connect you with your neighbors, with the nation and the world—through news, music and stories worth telling.

Thank you.

Your support gives all of us hope. It says clearly that rigorous, fact-based journalism and ethical media practices matter to you, to our community, to our society.

From all at North Country Public Radio, thank you.

Ellen Rocco
Station Manager

    Glad you made it.

    I think NPR should, to some degree, be public supported, but we now have a heinous facsimile of a president that doesn’t understand what many communities like ours is like.

    That is permanent residents near the poverty line because of few good jobs. Added to this the geography that we love, separates us out. I am guessing, but I would say that 90 percent of the people who live in your listening area, you are the ONLY media. Schroon Lake, Westport, North Creek, Minerva they do not have any media outlet they could call their own.

    There are a few weekly newspapers, but they end up covering so much, so many towns, they tend to not do any of them justice. I guess the same could be said for you (listen to a weather forecast that tries to cover your listening area is often amusing)

    That said, people should think about the Ice Storm.. or the Prison Break… or as small as a lost dog… Well people who criticize you (me among them) need to think what a difference it would have been without you.

    keep on

    I can’t think of a better return on my tax dollars, that and my $15 donation.

    So much to love about NCPR. What a difference it WOULD be without you. Where else can you find the scope of information and entertainment, national and local news (of all kinds) in one place? Of course it ain’t perfect – as if any of us would even agree what “perfect” might look like! – but it seems to always strive to inform its listeners in meaningful and often fun ways.

    I’ve listened to other NPR stations in several parts of the country and I’ve got to say that NCPR is among the cream of the crop.
