In 2021, the pandemic persisted. Economic pressures escalated. Uncertainty mounted. And, paradoxically, commercial news outlets in Delaware and beyond continued to consolidate and shrink their coverage.
Amid this shifting landscape, our award-winning news team brought Delawareans nearly 1,800 First State-specific stories in 2021: Education and elections, the environment, water quality. Legislative highlights and news about area businesses. Delaware reactions to COVID and issues of social justice.
It’s why we’re here: To report on the stories that matter to our community. On-air, online, on social media, we bring you the news you need as it happens.
As a nonprofit, we depend on the support of our readers to keep us going strong, all year long. Your support will sustain DPM as a permanent, vigorous institution for producing the best-quality journalism in the public interest, and you’ll help power a mix of our own top-rated shows and the best programs NPR has to offer like Morning Edition and All Things Considered. You are an essential part of Delaware Public Media!
Delaware deserves its own noncommercial news source, and we’re committed to continuing to fill that need in 2022 and beyond. Will you help us raise funds to upgrade our space and expand our signal?
Please consider giving to Delaware Public Media during this year’s Do More 24 giving day, and help sustain journalism that matters.
On behalf of all of us at DPM, thank you for making it possible for us to be the place where Delawareans get tuned in. We are in this together.
