New Series:
Since You Asked

Asking good questions is at the heart of good journalism. But we’re not the only ones who can ask good questions. With our new series Since You Asked, we’re turning to YOU. What have you always wondered about the North State? What questions do you have about this place we call home? So far, we’ve investigated “Where exactly is Northern California?” and “What’s safer: Highway 99 or Highway 70?” as well as “Is Bidwell Park really the third largest municipal park in the country?” and “What pesticides are sprayed on almond orchards, and are they harmful to those who live nearby?” Follow along to see what we find out next, or submit your own question!

Fall Membership Drive Review
null
null
  null  
null
null
null

Recently, NSPR completed its fall membership drive and, although pledges are still coming in, we can call it a success. The station raised just over $60,000 in one-time member gifts, and we saw more listeners becoming Sustaining Members. Sustainers are so important because through automatic monthly withdrawals from a checking account or on a credit card, they provide NSPR with a reliable source of revenue to better budget with. The NSPR operating budget is $1,120,000—of which members account for the largest source of funding, 42 percent of revenue. When coupled with the community businesses that support the station through underwriting, 58 percent of NSPR’s funding comes from listeners. A huge thanks to everyone who supported NSPR during the drive and to those sustainers and local businesses who support public radio throughout the year.

Staff Profile: Elizabeth Sosa Bailey
Underwriting Associate

This fall, NSPR was pleased to welcome Elizabeth Sosa Bailey to its staff as an underwriting associate, a position focused on cultivating corporate support for the station.

Born and raised in inner city Houston, Bailey got her start in radio at KUHF Houston Public Radio (now Houston Public Media, the city's NPR and PBS affiliates). A self-described public radio backseat kid, she grew up listening in her parents' cars, and later realized she was tuning in to hear classical music and NPR news and storytelling shows even when on her own.

Bailey attended the University of Houston where she received her BA in sociology, minoring in English with a focus on creative writing.

Broadcast Engineering at NSPR

It is a challenge to move radio waves across valleys, through forests, and around mountains to bring NSPR to listeners in 11 Northern California counties. If you listen in Hayfork, Weaverville, Dunsmuir, Burney, or Redding you have experienced some dropped signals or less-than-clear transmission over the past few months. Although the NSPR streaming service at mynspr.org is always running, we know you want to listen the most convenient way—be that the FM radio in your truck or the FM radio in your home or at work.
