I Love Wyoming Public Radio

I Love Wyoming Public Radio week was February 7-14, 2017. It’s a project raising awareness for Wyoming Public Radio. Be a part of this week by considering what you love about WPR.

I Love Wyoming Public Radio week started September 7, 2014 to raise awareness for Wyoming Public Radio in Wyoming and was hugely successful. We received numerous testimonials and Proclamations, with more still coming! Most of these are proudly displayed below where you can read and listen. You can still be a big part of this initiative and help WPR. All it takes is a minute of your time. It's simple; just think what it is you appreciate about WPR and jot it down. You can record your thoughts, or you can mail them to us. Your testimonials can be short — usually one minute works well.

We will continue to make these testimonials available online and on-air as they come in. We will also refer to these testimonials as support material for grants and other instances where strong community engagement is needed to show WPR's value to Wyoming. This is very important to WPR. Granting organizations as well as state and federal entities want to know that their resources are being spent on a service that people value. This is where you come in. By making the testimonial you show that you value WPR.

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.

I have listened to Public Radio all my life in a number of different states. The variety and quality of programing on WPR is well above average. The shows are engaging. The news is world class high quality reportage.

Well, that's where I get mail; I live quite a ways out in the country. I don't use television (it strikes me as a lot like dumpster-diving; a few really good tidbits in the midst of a lot of trash) so I really depend on WPR as a window on the world.

The news reporting is very important to me as are the insightful and thought provoking talk shows and the variety of music. I'm also VERY pleased with the new program lineup! Some of the "new" programs are those I enjoyed on public radio while living in Oregon. Thanks for your good work!
