About Us

The New England News Collaborative is telling stories of our connected and rapidly changing region.

The NENC is an NPR regional newsroom working with 10 public media stations in New England. We report the top local and regional news stories on issues such as climate change and the environment, health, racial equity, politics and the economy.

The mission of the New England News Collaborative is to produce impactful multimedia journalism that informs and empowers audiences to become change agents in our communities.

From special reporting on climate change to covering the day’s top stories, the NENC is expanding the ways public media works together to serve more New Englanders that reflect our region’s growing diversity. Our effort includes building new capacity in professional development, visuals storytelling and multimedia collaboration necessary for all our newsrooms to excel on different platforms, including radio, video, digital and social media. The NENC was founded in 2015 and became an NPR regional newsroom in July 2024.
