Northern Public Radio is a member station of National Public Radio, or as we affectionally like to call it-- the “mothership.” But WNIJ is in fact independent, locally owned and operated. That’s a rarity in today’s media landscape. NPR also relies on member station reporters to bring listeners stories that create a sense of place. WNIJ reporters have been featured over the years on national newscasts as well as reporting featured on fan favorites like Morning Edition and All Things Considered. We are grateful for our decades long partnership with NPR.
