Concord, NH - Jun 5, 2008 - New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) begins construction of its new broadcast facility at 2 Pillsbury Street in Concord, NH, this week. NHPR is in the final stage of a $6.5 million capital campaign that has surpassed the $5 million benchmark set by the board to commence the building process. More than 175 individual, corporate, and foundation contributors have donated $5.1 million to date. The new broadcast center doubles the square footage of the station's 10,000 square foot current location at 207 North Main Street.

According to Betsy Gardella, president and CEO of NHPR, the new broadcast center will upgrade dated studio and production facilities. The construction contract for the project has been awarded to North Branch Construction of Concord, NH. The construction process is expected to take six months and NHPR is planning on moving into its new home mid-December 2008.

NHPR's production and broadcast center will be home for up to 60 reporters, producers, hosts, and administrative staff.
