National Public Radio Hourly News

While other news organizations downsized over the past several years, NPR News added reporters, correspondents, and offices worldwide, and now gathers and produces content from some 36 locations around the world.

Audiences hear the results of NPR's dynamic expansion when correspondents stationed across the nation and around the world are able to bring them growing numbers of voices and unique perspectives from people around the world.

NPR West is fast becoming a resource that strengthens NPR's coverage by reflecting the ethnic diversity, cultural dynamism, and vibrancy of the American
