Sunday Outages

You may have noticed some of NHPR's signals were down for a brief time on Sunday, July 28th.  A surge suppressor malfunctioned and shorted out a main electrical panel at our Concord tower.  NHPR's engineering team responded immediately and was able to identify the problem and bypass the defective equipment to get our signal back on air. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Programming Changes Come To Midday

As you may recall, NPR announced in March that Talk of the Nation will cease production at the end of this month.

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens. At NHPR, we have taken this opportunity to take a look at our entire weekday lineup, and challenged ourselves with some important questions. Which programs should we consider as possible additions to our schedule? Are we scheduling the right programs—at the right times—to provide our listeners with the best possible soundtrack to their weekdays?
