The overall goal of WAMC/Northeast Public Radio is to provide programming as varied as the human experience. Our mission is to serve the public by preparing and presenting non-profit and non-commercial educational, instructional and cultural radio and live programs that celebrate the diversity of our broadcast and live audience. Our two discrete program streams provide a unique blend of national and regional news and information, opinion and commentary, artistic, cultural, and musical programming to listeners in portions of seven Middle Atlantic and New England states. We continue to produce and invest in programs that offer diverse perspectives on important issues.
In our journalism, diversity means the inclusion in our reporting of the vastly different voices and opinions of mis or under-represented people and those often ignored. WAMC strives to include differing opinions in our content. To do this, we consciously think of and discuss what diversity includes; race and ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, faith, age, sexual orientation, disabilities, political affiliation and geographic location. In this way, our staff and content will continually evolve and ultimately be unbiased.
WAMC strives to ensure our workforce, Board of Trustees, and Community Advisory Board likewise include the existence of variations of different characteristics of the many, vastly diverse communities which we serve. Our internship program is used to attract a diverse talent pool of people to consider working in public media.
WAMC plans to further diversify our workplace, content and audience in the coming year. This will include creating clear and inclusive decision-making processes that empower staff to have a voice at every level of the station and expanding our on-demand content offerings and marketing initiatives to grow a more diverse audience. WAMC will also be adding a social media coordinator position to expand our online presence, create more engaging content and attract younger audiences.
