Reports on Wyoming State Government Activity

"A strong civil society and democracy requires its citizens be informed with the facts.” -- Patricia Harrison, CPB President and CEO

The Wyoming State Government Collaboration answers the questions: How does your government work? What does it do? How does it affect your life? What role do you play in creating a healthy and functioning state? Funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Collaboration employs two reporters dedicated to reporting on Wyoming’s state government activity. Wyoming Public Media and Jackson Hole Community Radio are partnering to cover reporting both on air and online.

The initiative stemmed from the State Government Coverage in Public Media survey commissioned by CPB and published in 2022. The survey found that while public media stations in all 50 states provide original state government reporting at least weekly when their legislatures are in session, not all states have a full-time state government beat reporter based at a public media station. Wyoming was selected from national media applicants from 19 states.
