The mission of NPR is to work in partnership with member stations to create a more informed public — one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures. To accomplish our mission, we produce, acquire, and distribute programming that meets the highest standards of public service in journalism and cultural expression; we represent our members in matters of their mutual interest; and we provide satellite interconnection for the entire public radio system. NPR is a nationally acclaimed provider of news, information, and entertainment programming, and is the media industry leader in sound gathering and production. The world's first noncommercial, satellite-delivered radio network, NPR is an independent, private, nonprofit membership organization funded primarily through its own service-generating activities. NPR was incorporated in 1970 pursuant to the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967, but it is not a government agency. NPR is not a radio station itself nor does it own any radio stations, but NPR programs can be heard on more than 860 public radio stations across the United States.
