News and Public Affairs Service
People trust WHYY News & Public Affairs to bring them the most intelligent and in-depth programming on television and radio. In consecutive national public opinion polls, audiences named PBS and NPR as two of the most trusted sources for news and public affairs programs.1
The goal of WHYY News & Public Affairs is to put today's most complex regional, national and world issues into context by providing clarity, a diverse perspective, intelligent insight and meaningful analysis. These are the hallmarks of WHYY's News & Public Affairs service and what make us stand out in today's cluttered marketplace.
WHYY commands a level of public trust unmatched by other broadcasters through:
Our News & Public Affairs service offers multiple ways to know the who, the what, the where, the when and, most importantly, the why:
Looking forward, WHYY News & Public Affairs will produce "The Next Mayor," a special yearlong series that will address the important issues raised during Philadelphia's mayoral race and other regional elections scheduled for fall 2007. Working with our content partner, The Philadelphia Daily News, we will utilize print media, television, radio, the Web and digital platforms to inform and engage the widest possible audience.
And, when we open next year a state-of-art news bureau in Dover, Delaware, we will enhance our coverage of the issues and events that impact residents of the First State.
Helping our audiences make informed and confident decisions about their future is one of the many ways we continue to earn their unwavering trust and respect.
