Senator Cynthia Lummis loves WPR because it offers an in-depth look at both local and national news. When listening, she's reminded of how great it is to live and Wyoming and how great it is to have Wyoming Public Radio.

Pat has loved WPR since he served as a newscaster for the station in 1968. He loves how the once small station on the University of Wyoming campus has grown into a statewide media source.

Hi, WPR Team!

I had the wonderful privilege of working in the newsroom from 2011-2013. I was also there for one of the early Pet Wednesday pledge drive promotions. It was so much fun to hear how excited the listeners got about shout-outs for their cats and dogs (and sheep and horses and goats and chickens and iguanas)! The News team even dressed up as animals once!

I was KUWR's Director of Programming from 1977-78. During my tenure, KUWR became a 50,000-watt NPR affiliate. Mick McLean was in charge of news, Curt Snook programmed classical music, and John Baxter coordinated the students. Our guiding light was General Manager and public radio pioneer John McMullen, one of the coolest guys on the planet.

I went on from KUWR to be an anchor, writer, and editor for the Voice of America. I then became Senior Editor of Monitor Radio, The World, and NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday.

I was coordinator for news and public affairs for KUWR roughly during the Reagan years. I arrived in August 1980 and succeeded Abby Kendrick, who left to teach broadcast journalism at Howard University. John McMullen was the general manager, Mick McLean the program director, Dave Worley the chief engineer, Curt Snook the fine arts coordinator, and Tom Wilhelm was the king of bluegrass as long as I can remember.

Don Woods served as the Chief Engineer and Morning Host for KUWR   (1984-2007). 

When I arrived in October 1984, the drives were once a year. My first two years at WPR (84-86) I did not participate in the fund drive, for I was the Chief Engineer and only air staff and students took part.

I miss my time at KUWR, working with Frank Imhoff, Don Woods, Charles Pelkey, Lee Christian, and Audrey Waldock. There was Pete Buchin the opera guy, and Tom Wilhelm with “Ranch Breakfast,” amazing even back then, Chris Heck and Dave Worley, also a few of my favorite KUWR-ers, and Marci, the Morning Edition host.

The First WPR Website

As Wyoming Public Radio, i.e. Wyoming Public Media, celebrates its 50th anniversary, it has been involved with the ever changing online world for more than a third of its existence.

Public Radio, KUWR, first developed a website in 1997-98. It was created by Grafikat Design Company. It was a simple site, like many at the time, featuring links to programming information, weather and road condition, the University of Wyoming, and most importantly, membership pledge and associated gift levels.
