The Mission of Spokane Public Radio
The following fundamental values guide our mission:
- We trust the ability of our listeners to discern between competing ideas
- We endeavor to promote and maintain the highest level of journalistic excellence
- We actively participate in the cultural life of our listening communities
The mission of SPR remains rooted in the Report of the Carnegie Commission on Educational Television, which led Congress to pass the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967, which sagely found that public TV and radio programming "can help us see America, whole, in all its diversity," serving as a "forum for controversy and debate," and "provide a voice for groups in the community that may otherwise be unheard." Spokane Public Radio remains guided by the spirit of the Carnegie Commission in fulfilling its mission.
