Underwriting & Business Support

Just as you, the underwriter, supports NHPR -- our loyal listeners will support you.

Our team can create marketing plans for all levels of businesses and non-profits. Whatever amount you invest, know  that your dollars will reach audiences that are truly listening.

New Hampshire Public Radio is a statewide multi-platform network bringing award-winning local content, national and international news, and superlative cultural programming to all corners of New Hampshire; the bordering regions of Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont; and beyond. 

NHPR is broadcast from 14 different sites, making it by far New Hampshire's largest (and only) statewide radio news service. Our reach extends from the Canadian border, to the Seacoast to the Connecticut River Valley, and all points in between and beyond (with some listenership in adjoining states). Our award-winning and experienced team of news reporters, producers, hosts and editors is best suited to provide timely, contextual and relevant information to an audience hungry for news, information and connectivity. In addition, national and international news from our partners at NPR and the BBC World Service round out our coverage with important national and global perspectives. Loyal listeners also turn to long running public radio favorites like the news quiz show Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!; the weekday magazine program of contemporary art and issues Fresh Air; in-depth business coverage from Marketplace; and music and comedy with Live From Here. 

 Every week, NHPR is the choice of 157,000 listeners as a primary source of in-depth and intelligent news coverage, with thousands more viewing NHPR.org, following our social media sites, or listening to our podcasts.

Our audience is one that is richly populated with business owners, community leaders and discerning consumers. NHPR listeners are educated, affluent, and engaged – much more so than the general population. They have an annual buying power of $10 billion. And they are loyal: a wide majority of public radio listeners hold more favorable opinions of and are more likely to patronize businesses that support public radio through underwriting and sponsorships.
