NPR stands for national public radio. It is a station on the radio (hence the name) that broadcasts news and sometimes stories that other radio stations dont talk about. I grew up listening to NPR because my father likes the radio more than a TV. NPR is very educational and the hosts are sometimes funny. I hope you understand now. :p
