Wyoming Public Media received a CPB grant to strengthen education reporting in Wyoming as part of the national American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen program. This long term national public media commitment, supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), assists public broadcasting stations in reporting on a wide array of education issues that impact graduation rates in their communities. The grant provides partial support for a full-time education reporter for WPM and encourages WPM to build partnerships with education stakeholders in the state.
WPM will partner with Wyoming PBS in a two year grant awarded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to report on energy-related issues in the Rocky Mountain area. Wyoming will join public broadcasters in Colorado and North Dakota to provide coverage of energy that explores tradeoffs and opportunities, and the effects of energy policy, production, use and innovation.
While originating with a focus on the energy boom states of Wyoming, Colorado, and North Dakota and Wyoming, the reporting will explore issues of national interest and importance.
