In a year like 2020, Blue Ridge Public Radio offers strength and stability during these intensely changing and chaotic times.
BPR’s reliable local, national, and global news coverage and cultural content helps Western North Carolina listeners better understand one another and the world. For BPR to continue the meet this moment with dedicated expertise and integrity, our trusted public service counts on listener support.
The BPR Fall Membership Drive is happening now, and we’re asking for every listener to help us end the fiscal year on solid ground. While free to listen, BPR News and BPR Classic require significant financial resources, like the $500,000 BPR pays each fiscal year for programming like Morning Edition, Marketplace and Wait, Wait... Don’t Tell Me! The forecast is uncertain for what’s ahead, yet Member support guarantees that BPR stays a daily lifeline for listeners like you.
