Adirondack Foundation and NCPR are key organizations tying communities of the region together. NCPR is the only entity—print, digital or broadcast—providing regional news, information and cultural content. This project seeks to expand regional broadcast and digital news/information services with a special emphasis on creating the next generation of professionals in public media journalism.
