NPR Grant to be Spent on News Team

The grant is for $1.5 Million and it comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. NPR will launch a major journalism initiative to "deepen coverage of race, ethnicity and culture, and to capture the issues that define an increasingly diverse America," according to a press release. NPR says it will produce compelling stories online and on-air, staffed by a six-person team.

"This new team and defined area of coverage will empower NPR to cover news and issues across the U.S. more fully, delivering on our promise for NPR to look and sound like America, said Gary E. Knell, President and CEO of NPR. CPBs forward-thinking commitment to diversity challenges public media to do more, and to do better, and we accept that challenge wholeheartedly.
