ANNUAL REPORT 2015

Thank You

What a difference a year makes! In September of 2014, New England Public Radio celebrated the grand opening of its new headquarters in downtown Springfield. Finally, the reporters, hosts, and producers who make great radio day in and day out, have a state-of-the-art, professional working environment - one that promotes collaboration and innovation, and allows them to take advantage of new technology, new studios, and new equipment. And they are taking advantage - producing award-winning documentaries, launching brand-new podcasts, collaborating with area organizations and the college community on new projects and events, and challenging our concepts of what radio can do for a community. Now comfortable in our new home, we are looking forward even more, to building on our legacy, and expanding our reach.

 

Our new space at 1525 Main Street has invigorated our commitment to you, our listeners, who made it possible. So much has been accomplished in FY15 (July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2015)  - I look forward to sharing it with you in this report, and to another year of great radio ahead.

 

On behalf of the staff, thank you so much for your commitment to public radio. New England Public Radio is made possible because of you.

 

Many thanks,

Martin Miller

CEO and General Manager

 

1525 Main Street Grand Opening

Hundreds of listeners and well-wishers joined us in September 2014 for our Grand Opening Celebration at our new home at 1525 Main Street in downtown Springfield. The festivities at City Stage included a keynote by former WFCR Intern and UMass Amherst graduate, Audie Cornish, who is currently hosting All Things Considered for NPR. Beautiful performances were given by the Springfield Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Trombonist, Brian Diehl, and the Community Music School of Springfield’s Charles Majid Greenlee Scholarship Jazz Ensemble. Words of thanks and reflections were shared by Congressman Richie Neal, Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, UMass Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy and NEPR’s CEO & General Manager Martin Miller. Speaking for the 50th Anniversary Campaign were Honorary Chair Anne Garrels and Campaign Chair Jack Dill. The afternoon block-party kicked off with an incredible show by the UMass Amherst Minuteman Marching Band and featured many great performances by some of the region’s premiere musicians including Charles Neville, Avery Sharpe and the Green Street Trio.

By October, the lights were on, computers were humming and the microphones were “hot” at our new home. Over the past year, we’ve settled in, getting to know our new neighborhood, and enjoying coming to work in a state-of-the-art facility. As our classical music host John Nowacki recently said, the opportunity “to work in a beautiful space like this is a once in a career opportunity”.

The public has also raved about our new headquarters and the architect for the project, Kuhn Riddle of Amherst, was given the Honor Award by the Western Massachusetts Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for the design of the 15,000 square foot space. Our new tour program got underway in September. If you would like a tour, visit NEPR.net/tour to sign up!

PROFILE

Pam Malumphy joined NEPR as Executive Director of Development and Major Gifts in February 2015. She arrives at an exciting time in our organization’s history as we wrap up a successful capital campaign and raise new money to support future programming initiatives. Pam brings incredible experience, and as a western Massachusetts native she has a great deal of knowledge about our region. Her experience includes professional fundraising roles with Boston Symphony Orchestra and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund.

I could not live without it.”

New FREQUENCIES

NEPR added two new frequencies to the NEPR News Network, WNNI, 98.9FM in Northern Berkshire County, and in September (technically FY16, but we’re excited!), thanks to a unique partnership with Amherst College, the NEPR News Network can now be heard on 89.3FM WAMH in Hampshire County from 2:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. News and talk fans can hear On Point, Here & Now, The Takeaway and more on the FM dial across Hampshire County and points north and south. Amherst College students program the station in the evenings, so stay tuned and discover what the kids are listening to these days!

If you have an HD Radio, 88.5FM HD-3 now also broadcasts the NEPR News Network.“While this type of partnership is not unique, it is fairly rare around the country,” says Martin Miller, CEO and General Manager of NEPR. “Our goal is to give news listeners an FM option during the day (in addition to AM 640 WNNZ) until they can go to WFCR at 88.5FM for evening news beginning at 4:00 p.m. with All Things Considered. We are grateful to the Amherst College community for giving us the opportunity to co-program WAMH in this way.”

FROM THE NEWSROOM

NEPR brought listeners coverage of international, national and regional news from our partners, NPR, American Public Media and Public Radio International, and our own award-winning newsroom. We closely tracked the emerging opiate abuse epidemic in New England, airing stores that explored both the people affected by the crisis and the official response to it. The News Department also brought listeners extensive, (and continuing) coverage of the casino planned for Springfield, including the economic and social implications. We produced and aired two documentaries focusing on health care; and provided special coverage of regional races from the 2014 elections -- both the Massachusetts primaries and general election. Nearly every week, we also aired conversations with a State House reporter about legislation under consideration on Beacon Hill.

In FY 2015 we heard from a diverse range of commentators, including:

Mark Edington, director of the Amherst College Press, and rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Newtonville, Mass.

Michael Carolan who teaches literature and writing at Clark University

Northampton based writer Linda McCullough Moore

Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy and Economic research in Amherst, Massachusetts

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Madeleine Blais

Food writer T. Susan Chang

Ellen Moyer, an independent environmental consultant, author and blogger for the Huffington Post

Writer and Educator Tzivia Gover , author of “Learning in Mrs. Towne’s House”.

Springfield’s South End Looks Ahead As Massachusetts Votes On Casinos

Henry Epp

A look ahead

NEPR piloted In Contrast with Ilan Stavans, hosted by the award-winning author and Lewis-Sebring Professor of Latin American and Latino Cultures at Amherst College. In Contrast explores culture in a very broad sense– from the arts and humanities to the individuals that contribute to making the region a vibrant place. The two pilot episodes were well-received, and funding is being sought to continue expanding the show. You can listen to them, and share your thoughts at NEPR.net/incontrast.

Spotlight on Morning Edition

It may surprise some of our listeners to learn that two of NEPR’s youngest employees are at the helm of Morning Edition every weekday. Both the show’s technical producer, J. Kyle Sullivan, and its host, Henry Epp got their start at NEPR as interns while still in college at UMass and Hampshire College respectively - and they’ve come a long way.  We asked them to share a little bit about what it’s like to produce NEPR’s most popular show, starting with that early morning wake up call.

So, what time do you get into the station in the morning,
and who makes the coffee?

Henry: I roll in around 5:15...5:20 on a bad day. My first live break is at 5:30, so I cut it fairly close, though I believe I’ve only missed that first break once (I got caught in traffic when there was an accident on I-91. Everything suddenly ground to a halt and I just sat there, helplessly listening to the show go on without me. I hope that never happens again). I usually drink a cup of coffee at home, then another once I’m off the air. Coffee’s essential, but not so great for the vocal chords, so I try not to drink much of it during the show.

Kyle: I’ll usually get in about 5 minutes before 5am, with just enough time to get the work station set up for the day in Master Control. After the first break I can run to the kitchen and get some coffee started.

Describe the flow of the morning.

H: I start before I leave my apartment, looking at the email rundown of local material as I eat breakfast. Once I’m in, I write a weather forecast and start to figure out where all our local stories will go in the show. After that, it’s a constant cycle of combing through the AP and other local news outlets, writing and reading newscasts, reading underwriting credits, and pestering Kyle until 9 a.m.

K: Non-stop until 7am, then we know exactly what we’re doing. ***(ME is a 2hr magazine, edits for clarity/style are added to the repeat broadcast from 7-9am)

What do you listen to on your commute in the AM?

H: I usually listen to podcasts. Some of my favorites: Snap Judgment, Fresh Air, Bullseye with Jesse Thorne, WTF with Marc Maron, and Comedy Bang Bang.

K: Haha, commute? I roll out of bed and walk three blocks to get to work.

What’s the best thing about producing Morning Edition?

H: Getting to be a part of a truly fantastic show. NPR packs so much into every day, and we add some really great local reporting as well. It’s a privilege to be able to bring that to our listeners.

K: I’ll still read a lot of daily news when I get out of work, but being able to work on this show makes me feel like I’ve got a pulse on what’s going on in my community, and around the world, every day. Quality presentation of our content is my main priority, and getting our listeners the best sound we can is something I really enjoy.

 What’s the toughest part of the job?

H: For the first few months, the early hours were
the toughest part. Now I’ve acclimated to it.

K: Honestly, the merits of the job make it worth it. I like to think of it as a public service. I guess when we make a mistake, or something doesn’t work on air exactly as we had envisioned it – it can be hard to move past the error. There’s not much time to dwell on those things anyway. We’ll both briefly reflect on why something didn’t work, think about how to avoid it in the future, and then it’s on to the next break or newscast… that conversation lasts about 30 seconds.

Do you actually get to listen to Morning Edition or are you so busy that you don’t really hear the program?

H: I’m always half-listening, and each hour of the show repeats. So if I miss parts of a story the first time around, I listen more closely the second time. Even though the national show doesn’t always have my full attention, I feel like I’m at least peripherally aware of the important stories of the day.

K: I’ve probably never listened to a full segment since I started technical direction for the show. The clock moves fast, so usually when we get out of a live break we’re moving right on to prepare the next one. I’ve definitely surprised some co-workers when they’ve wanted to talk about something we aired from NPR… and I have no idea what they’re talking about. During fund drives, I hear nothing… I’ve got about twice as much to do on those days.

MUSIC

Birthday Candles a top Jazz à la Mode - NEPR’s Beloved Jazz Show Celebrates 30 Years on the Air!

Tom Reney has been the host and producer of Jazz à la Mode since its inception on August 6, 1984. From the host’s chair, he has interviewed many musical greats over the years, including the NEA Jazz Masters Dave Brubeck, Max Roach, Billy Taylor, James Moody, Jackie McLean, Yusef Lateef, Jimmy Heath, Lee Konitz, Sheila Jordan, George Wein and Wynton Marsalis.

Tom Reney, pictured here with Kari Njiri and Peter Sokolowski at NEPR’s Sinatra Holiday Party, December 2015

Special features on individual artists have been a hallmark of Jazz à la Mode. Tom has presented year-long series devoted to the centennials of Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and in 2015, Billie Holiday, and Billy Strayhorn. He’s looking ahead to the centennials of Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and Ella Fitzgerald in 2017 and to the new releases that will arrive in tomorrow’s mail.

Tom writes extensively about music on the NEPR jazz blog, and has been busy launching the station’s first foray into podcasting with JazzBeat, which can be found on iTunes, or wherever you download your podcasts.

He’s lectured at many colleges and libraries throughout New England over his 30 year career, and emceed all the region’s major jazz festivals: Newport; Tanglewood; Litchfield; the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz; the Saratoga Jazz Festival; the Springfield Jazz and Roots Festival; and the Northampton Jazz Festival. In November 2014, Tom, and 250 fans celebrated 30 years of Jazz à la Mode in November with an all-star concert at the Community Music School of Springfield, featuring performances by Charles Neville, Karrin Allyson, Steve Davis, Avery Sharpe, Grant Stewart, Nat Reeves, Paul Arslanian, George Kaye, Jay Hoggard and Jon Fisher.

“If I had a mission statement for Jazz à la Mode, it’s been to cultivate an audience for this wonderfully rich genre of music that has touched so many elements of our culture. What impresses me most about the last 30 years is both the enduring presence of an audience for jazz around the world and the musicians that dedicate their lives to it.”

– Tom Reney

On the classical side,  Walter Carroll took a break from his hosting duties in April and accompanied 50 NEPR listeners on a 10-day cruise down the Danube with Peter Van De Graaff, host of Through the Night on WFMT’s Beethoven Network, and Earthbound Expeditions. Read his travel log here: NEPR.net/travelblog

Morning classical host John Nowacki hosted pre-concert talks before packed houses at both the Springfield and Hartford Symphonies, and narrated Saint-Saens "Carnival of the Animals" (poetry by Ogden Nash) for the Halloween Concert presented by the Smith College Orchestra. John is also taking up the reigns at NEPR’s classical blog, and looks forward to hosting a trip to Italy for NEPR listeners in the spring of 2016.

Ever wish you could listen to
Jazz à la Mode  during the week?

NEPR has expanded its on-demand offerings on NEPR.net, where past episodes of Tertulia, Jazz Safari and Jazz à la Mode are available for a week following their original broadcast. Visit NEPR.net/ondemand for our on demand content. Classical music programs will be available
on-demand in later this year.

Words In Transit

As part of a partnership with Amherst College’s Copeland Colloquium, NEPR launched Words in Transit, a collection of personal stories from  nearly 30 people from around the world who have made their new home in western New England.

Designed to move the conversation about immigration from a policy discussion to personal narratives, Words in Transit offers oral histories and a series of photographic portraits by the noted documentary photographer Beth Reynolds.  To accompany the broadcast of a select series of stories in April 2015, NEPR launched a web site that features the complete collection of interviews and accompanying photographs, NEPR.net/wordsintransit.  NEPR and Amherst College also hosted a premiere of the audio series at Amherst College featuring a conversation with the series producers, and several of the immigrants featured.

We are excited to report that in 2016, Amherst College and NEPR will publish a coffee table book featuring the photographs and transcriptions of the oral histories.

IN THE COMMUNITY

NEPR was busy in the community as always, with our hosts presiding over pre-concert talks at the Springfield and Hartford Symphonies, and the UMass Fine Arts Center, emceeing the region’s preeminent jazz festivals in Springfield and Northampton, and this year, expanding our presence at local music festivals like Solid Sound and the Green River Festival, where our interns collected sound and photographs for two outstanding Street Level Sounds pieces.

In December, NEPR and the World Affairs Council brought NPR's International Correspondent Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson to Springfield, and then on to Mount Holyoke College where she met with students.

In collaboration with the Academy of Music, NEPR launched the Valley Voices Story Slam, a series of story slam events at Hinge Bar in Northampton that encouraged local storytellers to share their personal stories live, on stage. The Best of Valley Voices played to a sold-out crowd at the Academy in the spring. Congratulations to our winner, Suzanne Schmidt! Hear all of the stories here: NEPR.net/valley-voices. The second season of Valley Voices is underway now at its new home, the Northampton Brewery!

The Arts & Humanities Awards, NEPR’s signature celebration of the arts in western New England, celebrated guitarist and founder of Community Guitar, Andrew Lawrence; the Community Music School of Springfield, and poet Karen Skolfield. The honorees were feted in style with a fabulous party at the Log Cabin in Holyoke, where attendees got to listen in as our own Morning Edition host, Henry Epp interviewed his counterpart at NPR, David Greene!

Engineering

Ever wonder what it takes to keep the NEPR stations on the air 24/7? One of the hardest working members of our staff is without a doubt our Chief Engineer, Chuck Dube. He’s responsible for everything that takes the sound of our programs from our studio to your radio — from the announcer at a microphone through the control board and, via many processors, amplifiers, switchers, fiber and microwave links, to 13 transmitters at nine sites.

FY’15 was an especially busy time for Chuck, who designed and built our new radio studios at 1525 Main Street; oversaw the installation of the NEPR News Network on WNNI in Adams (which had been on the air at a temporary location since a massive tower collapse two weeks before the station’s scheduled debut in April 2014); and temporarily moved  our Williamstown translator  while upgrades to the Williams College building that houses it are being made ; and even managed to publish a piece in Radio Magazine about NEPR’s new headquarters.

All the while, Chuck remained at the ready, cell phone permanently switched on, even in the middle of the night, in case of snow, sleet, hail, or downed internet cable – all of which can affect the broadcast signals of NEPR’s eleven stations. An operation the size of NEPR takes near constant upkeep, and most of that work here is done by a single person. He took a short break to answer some questions about his work, and then he was off to Great Barrington, or was it Mount Lincoln?

What does a typical day look like for you?

I don’t really have typical days. We have many sites each of which is unique and has particular maintenance and repairs. Some days are administrative, and others (the fun ones) are where I get my hands a bit dirty.

How many miles have you logged this year taking care of transmitters and towers from Deerfield to Westfield, and out in the Berkshires?

I logged over 1,900 miles the first four months of this year. It varies as needs change. Sometimes it’s weather driven.

 What’s the most exciting thing about radio for you?

As far back as I can remember there was a radio playing around me, from the crib (my older brother’s idea of babysitting me while he ran off) to sitting in the garage trying to win a 45 during  contests (I never did.) As I got older and became a music geek, non-commercial radio became my focus. Playing in rock bands I often went to radio stations to bring our tapes or LPs for local hosts, whom we befriended. I’m still friends with many of those people. After college I volunteered at a college station and things grew from there. Like all mediums, radio has a culture of its own. Actually many cultures. And I’m attracted to them all, having worked in both the non-commercial and commercial sides of things. Magic happens when you work with like-minded people. Plus it’s a medium with a deep history. I really enjoy exploring the pictures, sounds and voices of the history of broadcasting.

 What’s the coolest thing in your shop right now?

Any of the receivers that allow me to listen to what’s on our air. I’m just as much a fan of the stations as anyone else out there.

Do you actually climb the radio towers to perform maintenance?

No- I let competent people do that. I will go up to a certain degree (<100’) but I’m not one who trusts myself enough. You really have to do that to climb.

What has been the most exciting thing to happen at NEPR from your perspective this year?

Settling into our new studio facilities in Springfield and watching how others use the tools they’ve been granted. Our capabilities are so much greater now than before, so everyone is growing. That’s pretty exciting.

With the five transmitters in the Berkshires, which one has provided to best view of the countryside?

Now there’s a good question. Not too many sites themselves are located with great views, but our Florida site has, within a few minutes’ walk, a remarkable vista looking off to the west where you can see all of North Adams, parts of Williamstown and Adams, and a lovely take on Mt. Greylock. It can be spectacular and remarkably enough, after years of working up there it’s only fairly recently where I’ve been able to partake of it. I often wondered why people were walking back into the woods there. They usually came back out, as far as I could tell, so I decided it was relatively safe to venture in and see what it’s all about. It was worth the effort. But 9 times out of 10 I’m pretty busy, so I don’t frequent that location. Bousquet has an interesting ride up if I’m able to take the chair lift, but that’s not usually the case these days. Some of the sites are pretty rural, so they’re good places to get work done and collect one’s thoughts.

The 50th Anniversary Capital Campaign for WFCR

To date, $8.3 million has been raised towards our overall $8,767,000 million campaign goal (which includes $1,767,580 in New Market Tax Credits) -  a phenomenal achievement. What is clear, NEPR could not have experienced this success without having received a number of leadership gifts to the Campaign this year that deserve special mention. The Mass Council's Cultural Facilities Fund made a second grant of $110,000, bringing its total contribution to $223,432. NEPR also received $75,000 from the Commonwealth in support of the building project and $40,000 from Develop Springfield for the facade at 1525 Main Street. Leading business gifts this year included a $25,000 gift from Big Y World Class Markets and significant individual gifts were received from Peter and Melissa Picknelly, Jennifer Endicott, Barrett Morgan and Tom Ewing and Marilyn London-Ewing. Finally, the Kittredge Foundation and Kit and Tom Dennis each made commitments of $50,000 to help fund the startup and production of NEPR Media Lab.

We will wrap up the campaign at the end of June 2016. In the meantime, we will continue asking individuals, banks and foundations for campaign support. As we have done throughout the campaign we will also continue to contact our long-time donors regarding our new facilities in Springfield and our bold plans for expanded local programming. Our offers of facility tours are frequently accepted and we are now hosting public tours every month.

DONORS

Our sincere thanks to the following listeners who made cumulative gifts of $500 or more to New England Public Radio’s Annual Fund, made a contribution to the capital campaign, or underwrote on NEPR and the NEPR News Network between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. We apologize for any errors in these listings. If your name is listed or omitted in error, please let us know at radio@nepr.net or by calling 413-735-6600 so we can correct our information. Thank you.
