In addition to a full news department serving just Wyoming, Wyoming Public Media is among the founding partners of the Mountain West News Bureau, a collaboration of public media stations that serve the Western states of Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Our mission is to tell stories about the people, places and issues across the Mountain West.
Many of these stories and issues are regional and affect all people living in the Mountain West. From land and water management to growth in the expanding West to our unique culture and heritage, the Bureau addresses issues that define us as a region. Part of the Bureau's charge is to submit stories to NPR and other national and global distributors, thus sharing the Mountain West culture more broadly.
The Mountain West News Bureau is a collaboration between Wyoming Public Media
, Boise State Public Radio
in Idaho, KUNR
in Nevada, Nevada Public Radio
, the O'Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West in Montana, KUNC
in Colorado, KUNM
in New Mexico with support from affiliate stations across the region.
Lead Wyoming reporter for this partnership is awaiting onboarding later in summer of 2022. Once in place, that individual coordinates contributions from all Wyoming Public Media reporters.
Matching or contributing donations for the support of this initiative or for general Wyoming Public Media reporting are welcome. For more information, contact Christina Kuzmych, Wyoming Public Media General Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
