2017 Murrows Entry - Overall Excellence
You can listen to the audio entry below or refer to the file included with the submission.
New Hampshire Public Radio’s mission is to report on the people and events shaping life in New Hampshire in ways that inform, challenge and surprise our audience. We do this by telling the kinds of stories that illuminate what it’s like to live in this small, sometimes weird, always fascinating state.
Our journalists seek out the stories that only we can tell, with an emphasis on creative use of sound, a feel for place, and a focus on people. Our reporting is rooted in New Hampshire, whether it’s the story of a high school ski jump championship, or an investigation into a major state developer’s environmental record. We send our reporters to national political conventions – and to farm stand outhouses. We’ve invested deeply in reporting on New Hampshire’s drug crisis. We strive to use data in innovative ways – for instance, in our reporting on the impact of gerrymandering – but we never forget that every story needs a compelling human voice to engage listeners.
We’re proud to be New Hampshire’s public radio service, and we’re proud of what we accomplished in 2016. Thank you for considering our submission for Overall Excellence.
