About Us

Northeast Indiana Public Radio is the licensee for 89.1 WBOI - NPR News & Diverse Music,, and WBOI Studios Podcasts.  NIPR is a 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization.

The mission of Northeast Indiana Public Radio is to strengthen the cultural, civic, and social fabric of the communities we serve, and to engage audiences with content that enriches the human experience. We apply our core competencies of reporting and storytelling, our relationship with audiences, and our capacity for innovation to create a space where audiences congregate, connect and contribute to a shared understanding of their community, their country, and the world.

We inform and engage audiences and create dialogue about state and community issues with accurate reporting that is based on a disciplined method for verifying facts and communicating clearly.

We expand perspectives through exposure to creative and thoughtful individuals, cultural and musical experiences.

Programming is produced by staff and over 50 volunteers. Over 3,000 households in Indiana and elsewhere are donating "members" of our stations, accounting for more than 50-percent of our annual budget. Programming is also underwritten by local businesses, and about 9-percent of our annual budget comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

NIPR's Board Chair is Tom Boyer. A list of NIPR's board members, as well as members of the Community Advisory Board can be found here.
