New Hampshire Public Radio is settling into its new broadcast center in its Concord, N.H. headquarters.
An open house this week was complete with tours to celebrate the new studios. NHPR says it reached its $6.5 million capital campaign goal for the project.
NHPR operates six transmitters and four translators and says it serves more than 150,000 listeners each week.
Its new production and broadcast center provides a venue where live call-in programs, interviews and feature stories can be produced. A new technological operations center helps distribute NHPR programs to and beyond its network of transmitters and satellite uplinks. The station’s new home includes a large community venue where local shows will be broadcast with in-studio audiences and well as special events such as performances and lecture series.
Betsy Gardella is president and chief executive officer of New Hampshire Public Radio, while Michael Saffell is director of engineering and Steve Donnell is station engineer.
Members of the public can sign up on the station Web site for a tour this coming Saturday, May 9.
