On-air fund drives are one of the most effective ways to raise money for the station and to gauge the quality of our service. We know that NHPR reaches nearly 200,000 weekly listeners through our broadcast from 12 sites across the Granite State. However, we don’t know who many of those people are, or whether they like what we do. There’s no better way to reach our audience and ask for support and feedback than an on-air drive.
A Joint Project of NHPR and the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy
NHPR and the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy are pleased to bring you the next event in our ongoing series, Justice & Journalism. This ongoing series presents a range of speakers throughout the year to discuss the intersection of justice and journalism and share experiences related to the media’s coverage of public policy and law.

Walter is remembered as a state politician who engaged all parties to come to agreeable solutions, engaged any community he was working with in civic dialog, and was a true gentleman. NHPR’s Walter Peterson Legacy Society carries on those values – supporting public radio in New Hampshire for the next generation of listeners and journalists.
