A Message from Our President

May 5, 2016

When I worked at National Public Radio, an oft-cited statistic was that public radio is freely available to 94% of the American public. I was concerned when I learned that a goodly part of the 6% to whom it is not available are our fellow Texans. Much as we love the grand scale of the Lone Star State, its geographic size does present broadcast challenges. One of the things that attracted me to TPR is that it is specifically part of our mission to bring public radio to those unserved and underserved markets.

A Message from Our President

We are so proud of TPR’s David Martin Davies who recently received a total of six awards from two prestigious journalism organizations. He was recognized with three Edward R. Murrow Awards in the investigative reporting and radio documentary categories. He was also honored with three First Amendment Awards for reporting excellence. Dave is an excellent journalist, but his is not a solo act. He is the first to recognize both his colleagues in the newsroom and those who help support his work behind the scenes.

Texas Public Radio's David Martin Davies was honored with three First Amendment Awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Fort Worth Chapter, at a dinner in Arlington on Friday, April 22.
