National Public Radio (NPR) is a US-based private and public-funded, non-profit organization in Washington, D.C. NPR was created by a congressional law unlike other non-profit media outlets such as the AP, and most of its fellow stations are owned by public universities (government entities). It serves as a national association of more than 1,000 public radio stations in the United States.
NPR produces and distributes news and cultural programs. Individual public radio stations do not need to broadcast all NPR programs. The majority broadcast a mix of NPR programs, publicly available media content from the United States, International Public Radios, Public Radio Exchange, and WNYC Studios and locally produced programs. The organization’s symbolic shows are two drive-time broadcasts, “Morning Edition” and the afternoon “All Things Considered”; By March 2018, drive time programs attracted 14.9 million and 14.7 million viewers respectively.
NPR and Open Society Institute
In October 2010, NPR received a $ 1.8 million grant from the Open Society Institute. The grant aimed to launch a project called Impact by the government that wants to place at least 100 journalists in its member radio stations in 50 states by 2013. OSI previously donated but does not take airline credit for its donations.
In April 2013, it moved from its 19-year-old home (635 Massachusetts Avenue) to new offices and production facilities at 1111 North Capitol Street NE, in a building adapted to the former C & P Telephone Storeroom and Mending Facility. In June 2013, it canceled the weekday call-in show “Talk of the Nation.”
Car Talk is a Peabody Award-winning radio program that is broadcast weekly on this network and elsewhere. It was presented by brothers Tom, and Ray Magliozzi also recognized as “Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers.”
