CPB Compliance

Since 1968, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has been the steward of the federal government's investment in public broadcasting. CPB provides essential operational support for the nearly 1,400 locally-owned and operated public television and radio stations, which reach virtually every household in the country. Nevada Public Radio is a recipient of CPB grant funding, an annual grant that is less than 9% of our annual operating budget yet represents vital support to maintain our program services across Nevada and parts of Utah, California, and Arizona.

In compliance with CPB's transparency requirements, we are pleased to provide the following disclosures and information.

Nevada Public Radio Statement of Diversity

Nevada Public Radio serves a region that is iconic and distinctive. Our geography includes the grandeur of red rocks and the Mohave Desert and the allure of the Las Vegas Strip. More often than not, Nevadans have chosen to make this region home. As of 2017, NVPR continued our expansion to become a statewide broadcaster with the acquisition of FM signal in Reno and Carson City. Our broadcast content now reaches a region defined by the Sierras and Reno’s economic renaissance. Reflecting the diversity of our region goes beyond the applicable laws around gender, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, ability, or genetic predisposition. For NVPR it also includes our rural non-urban audiences and those who seek out our content through non-traditional public media outlets. We are committed to attracting and retaining audiences who are new to public media yet resonate with the core values expressed in the excellence of our content and the independent nature of our media organization.

We will reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and the audiences we attract:

  • Through our governing and community advisory boards
  • Through our hiring practices, workplace culture, and executive leadership; and by:
  • The acquisition and creation of content on-air, online, and in print
  • The practice of original journalism and content creation in story selection, sourcing, and production
  • Creating points of connection in person and online
  • Participating in the life of the community and elevating philanthropy by leveraging our public media assets
  • Facilitating sustainability and success through corporate partnerships and sponsorship
  • Inviting and nurturing individual support from those who choose our media services
  • Making business decisions with companies, foundations, and organizations aligned with shared values as described above when all other factors are equal
  • Using the resources available to us through our local and national affiliations to build on our efforts over time
  • Recognizing and celebrating milestones in our efforts

Diversity Goal

Nevada Public Radio will document and measure annual progress toward the dimensions of diversity outlined in our statement and report to the NVPR Board and to the public in our Annual Report. On October 23, 2014, Nevada Public Radio received a quorum of votes via electronic communication to approve the NVPR Diversity Statement and Goal as written.
