Message from the President of NEPM

There’s something refreshing about a New Year. We take some time to think about the joys and challenges of the past year and look forward to what the coming year will bring. 2020 marks the start of a new decade and an important election year. Things may get complicated, but you can turn to the PBS NewsHour, and NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered for balanced reporting of national news. And our TV and radio news team will be there to make sense of important local down-ballot issues and races.

After the excesses of the Holiday season, we’re prone to making resolutions. Often these resolutions revolve around food consumption—I will be cutting back—and exercise—for me it’s getting back to yoga! But we often make resolutions about how we will spend our time.  Maybe this will be the year when you jump into the art of storytelling and you resolve to audition for NEPM’s Valley Voices. You may decide to spend more time with the young children in your life, and for that you may want to get to know Arthur, Maya, Xavier Riddle, and other PBS Kids friends. Perhaps you’re going to set aside more time for reading. NPR’s list of the best books of 2019 is a great place to start. Maybe this is the year that you decide to do some good work and meet new friends by becoming a volunteer for NEPM.

For us at New England Public Media the coming year will be tremendously exciting as we complete the roll out of the new organization. Soon you will see our new logo, hear our very own music theme, and experience what happens when our expanded news team goes out into the community to bring you the best local coverage in the region.

All of us at New England Public Media wish you a Happy New Year!


Martin Miller, President
