In preparation for the Fall pledge drive I sorted through regional news and found something I thought you'd be interested in; trending stories at NWPR. Wildfires, Hanford and the eclipse are up there. Marijuana is high, too. But what you may not know is how much our audience devours salmon and wolf related stories. Environmental pieces seem to speak to the heart of Northwest Public Radio listeners whether it's about alternative energy or sexual harassment at Fish and Game.
Northwest Public Radio's news team is growing. We recently hired a news manager, Scott Leadingham. And soon a Yakima bi-lingual reporter will be added to the team. Our partners Earthfix, Northwest News Network and sister public radio stations work to report on regional news you care about. You read these stories. Support what you use with a donation and grow the news coverage with a pledge here.
