As this dreadful pandemic continues with no end in site, NCPR becomes ever more vital to INFORM and ENGAGE north country people across the length and breadth of the broadcast area. In return for our donations, you INFORM us by sending NPR news and topics into our homes and this is a huge benefit to us. You ENGAGE us by encouraging listeners to provide local feel good stories, nature features, poems, book reviews, etc. These local programs create community spirit and help lift our spirits and that is good. and maybe that is enough.
The question I have for the NCPR Executive Council and for fellow listeners is; will NCPR also have the courage to use its solid reputation as an honest broker to ENGAGE local listeners in a civil discussion of the controversial issues which are threatening to tear this country apart? With or without NCPR, we are all facing profound decisions about our nation’s future.
