The mission of NPR is to work in partnership with member stations to create a more informed public — one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures. To accomplish our mission, we produce, acquire, and distribute programming that meets the highest standards of public service in journalism and cultural expression; we represent our members in matters of their mutual interest; and we provide satellite interconnection for the entire public radio system.

Launched in 1970 as a radio network by a group of public radio stations, today NPR is among the most successful news organizations in America and a growing presence in digital media including podcasting, mobile applications and social media.
