Wyoming Public Media Testimonials

Tell us your story by:

  • writing a letter
  • recording audio

For example, Pete and Lynn Simpson opted to record their testimonial in dialog form. If you look at Pete and see a resemblance to another well-known Wyoming Simpson named Al (as in Senator),  you're not mistaken! Many members of the Simpson family are strong supporters of Wyoming Public Media.

Wyoming Public Media collects testimonials from listeners to share with our audience on-air and online, as well as with state and federal legislators, and others who appreciate knowing about the value of public radio in Wyoming. Your experience with Wyoming Public Media, be it radio or online, is important because it shapes the vision and the direction of our services. We’re here to serve Wyoming with media that enriches lives!

David Shelles - Cheyenne WY

Credit Micah Schweizer

My name is David Shelles and I live here in Cheyenne, Wyoming. When I moved from Davenport, Iowa to Laramie, Wyoming in December of 2008, of course I had the privilege of driving Interstate 80 across Iowa and Nebraska. On the second day of my trip, I crossed the border from Nebraska into Wyoming at Pinebluffs and of course I started messing with the radio and it stopped on 91.9 and I heard Pat Gabriel's voice and that's actually kind of when I knew I was back home.

My name is Emiline Ostlind, I’m from Big Horn Wyoming. I grew up in Wyoming but I’ve lived out of state a couple of times. I spent a little over a year in Washington D.C. and when I lived there I would stream Wyoming Public Radio online because I loved hearing the weather in Pinedale, and just little snippets of information, and underwriting statements from businesses I recognized.

Pete: It isn’t shrill, it’s reasonable. And in a world of shrillness and sharpness and sound-bites, point is there’s language. There’s depth, there’s reason. This station, this connection, does not abandon reason or thoughtful consideration.

WPM Testimonials

“I’ve listened to you since probably the early ‘70’s. To me, it’s a lifeline to reality. You’re intelligent, and you can be trusted, I believe. I depend on you for that. To the day I die, I will be listening to public radio, no doubt.”

Annika

“We have it on, like, all day at my house. My family kind of listens to it together. There are no ads, and that’s really helpful. WPR just helps with letting people know what they need to know.”
