Houston Public Media

News 88.7 covers the Houston metro region, the nation’s sixth largest radio market. Our newsroom slogan is “Stronger, More Engaging News Content” and our goal is: “Our audience will identify News 88.7 as a friendly place where smart people work hard to tell them about serious issues in a way not available from other media. Our content will reflect the unique sound, texture and character of the Houston region.” In the last several years, our broadcast news has become much more closely aligned with the sound and pacing of NPR newscasts and the shows “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered”. We have roughly 400,000 weekly radio listeners, 70,000 streaming, and our webpage gets about 400,000 views a month.
