Public Radio

Death, sex, and money – three topics that are sure to stop any polite small talk in its tracks.

Death, Sex & Money is also the name of a podcast out of WNYC that explores these difficult topics. The show’s host Anna Sale is currently spending her summer in Cody, and she spoke with Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard about why Wyoming is such a special place for her family.

A Prairie Home Companion / American Public Media

After more than 40 years of hosting ‘A Prairie Home Companion,’ Garrison Keillor is handing the show over to his hand-picked successor, mandolinist Chris Thile, who debuts as the show’s new host this weekend.

WPR receives all NPR programming via a satellite dish atop one of the buildings on the University of Wyoming campus.  As part of our membership with the Public Radio Satellite System (PRSS) dishes are replaced periodically at NPR stations.  This week the WPR dish was replaced.  We are now operating on the new dish.  We pay membership to PRSS on an annual basis.  Your membership with WPR radio helps enable us to receive this service and NPR programming.

Another Halloween came and went, along with our event with author and humorist David Sedaris. We asked attendees to show up up in their best dressed for Wyoming Public Media's first ever costume contest. We were astounded by how many amazing costumes we saw, which made it nearly impossible to choose a winner. Thank you to everyone who came to David Sedaris and participated in our Halloween costume contest, it was a blast!

If you attended the event and wore a costume, please send us your photo to be included in this post: arader1@uwyo.edu

The Padesky Family loves Wyoming Public Radio! WPR has accompanied us all across the great state of Wyoming. Bob Beck has talked us through snowstorms on the way to snowshoe in Pinedale, Willow Belden through dappled sunshine to dodge bears at the base of the Tetons, and the Ranch Breakfast Show through windy drives down I-80 to pay our school of choice, good ol' UW, another visit.

Wyoming Public Radio provides high-quality, locally focused programming that isn't offered anywhere else.

With a statewide broadcast, WPR plays an important role in keeping people across the cowboy state informed on what’s going on in Wyoming and the world.

Thanks to your dedication, folks in Wyoming know they can rely on Wyoming Public Radio for news and programming that matter to their lives.

Hello WPM,

My husband and I were raised in Torrington and Cheyenne, met at UW, taught in the state for for 14 years, then left to teach overseas for the next 35! With retirement in 2002, we found the perfect property in Star Valley Ranch, now Wyoming's newest town only 2 miles from the state's newest Scenic Byway.

WPR and the expanse of public radio yield reports and stories opening my mind and compassion. There are standards calling us to accountability to each other whether in stories of achievement or challenges in Wyoming or the Wind River Indian Reservation.

NPR Code Switch takes the personal experience of discrimination to illuminate the universal cost to all people. Training for sustainability in professional skills of the WPR staff is demonstrated in programming content and delivery network. WPR has given me tools to be a better citizen and friend.

My husband and I turn Wyoming Public Radio on from the time we get up and leave it on until we go to bed. When traveling around the state, we keep the guide to different translator numbers handy.

I like the locally produced news programs, such as the recent Open Spaces segment on how education has helped prisoners in Wyoming and specifics on how much money it saves by reducing recidivism. Thanks to Bob Beck for his legislative coverage and for recruiting and training strings of good reporters.

Thanks for the new cultural programming by Micah Schweizer.
