Native Public Media is adding content from the Mountain West News Bureau, a regional collaboration of National Public Radio affiliates, to its distribution network.

The Mountain West News Bureau produces radio and web content from 14 NPR stations in Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. Its award-winning coverage highlights a wide range of tribal issues, including water rights, oversight by the federal government, and the impact of climate change.

“Receiving a healthy dose of stories relevant to Native Americans is powerful. Tribal citizens will benefit from the journalism talent of the Mountain West News Bureau across 60 Tribal radio stations located in fifteen states,” said Loris Taylor, President and CEO of Native Public Media.

"We're excited to be part of Native Public Media's extensive network and to help report on issues that are important to tribal communities across our region," said Dave Rosenthal, managing editor of the Mountain West News Bureau.


The Mountain West News Bureau is a collaboration among Wyoming Public Media, Nevada Public Radio, Boise State Public Radio in Idaho, KUNR in Nevada, the O'Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West in Montana, KUNC in Colorado, and KUNM in New Mexico, with support from affiliate stations across the region. Funding for the Mountain West News Bureau is provided in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
