Huzzah! The Wyoming Public Media 2016 Spring Membership Drive has officially wrapped up.

Thank you to all of our listeners who made a pledge and supported all of our services. We truly have the best members in the country.

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.
