Amid a White House characterizing the media as the “opposition party,” instant feedback – both positive and negative – via social media, coarsened public discourse on, well, everything that seems to even challenge objective facts, and long-standing debate in the public – and in media itself — over the role journalists should play, it can be a challenge to simply tell the stories of a community.

That’s what Houston Public Media News 88.7 does – we provide in-depth, thoughtful, relevant coverage of the day’s events. We explore developing trends in and around Houston and across Texas. And we seek to provide you with context about events happening here in Houston, across the nation, and around the world.

We talk with News 88.7 news director Dave Fehling about those efforts, and seek out your suggestions for issues and events for our newsroom to cover.
