MPR News

Your Membership helps tell the story behind the numbers

MPR News and the newly formed APM Research Lab are collaborating on a project called Ground Level. This partnership will allow the newsroom to tell the story behind the numbers and research that the lab will deploy. Reporters in the Twin Cities and in bureaus around the region will tell the human stories behind the numbers as part of the Ground Level reporting series. Some of the topics that will be covered by Ground Level include mental health, our trust in institutions like government, police and media.

Classical MPR

Your Membership raises voices in song across Minnesota

With your support, Classical MPR unites people through the power and beauty of classical music. Bring the Sing, a singing event for voices of all abilities, occurs in communities across Minnesota and is broadcast on Classical MPR. One conductor brings together community members from far and wide for a choral concert.
