Celebrating a century of accurate, unbiased news and information from Northwest Public Broadcasting.
Our mission has always been to put our audience first—to uphold public trust. As we reflect on our first 100 years and look forward to the next, the dedication to our listeners remains unchanged. Watch the video to hear General Manager Cara Williams Fry, Program Director Sueann Ramella, and Health Care Fellowship News Reporter Rachel Sun talk about the history that has shaped us and the vision for our future.
From the initial approval of a single radio station in 1922 to the centennial celebration of 2022, these are the events that have shaped our history.
From the hosts you love to listen to and our reporters in the field to the folks who help raise money and the engineers protecting our air space, running a station takes dedication and teamwork. This year, we interviewed past and present staff members and students about their work at NWPB, revealing honest and unexpected truths about serving the mission of public media.
