Wyoming Public Media is opening the position of Director of Engineering and Technology. Shane Toven, long-time Director of Engineering at WPM, has taken a new position as Editor of Radio Magazine. He will remain with WPM in a part-time capacity.
This position offers a rare opportunity to work with a state network and travel throughout Wyoming, one of the most beautiful states in the union. The network is financially strong, and recently received a $1 million state appropriation for infrastructure upgrades.
Wyoming Public Media supporter and listener Tara Kuipers happened to be in Washington D.C. this week. She was one of the lucky few who attended Carl Kassell's last Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me! show on May 15. Read all about her once in a lifetime experience:

Construction of the new signal to serve Kaycee and I-25 between Casper and Buffalo is complete. The new 1,600 watt signal can be heard in many areas where no other WPR service was previously available. We are already receiving reports from a number of listeners about the new signal. Turn your dial to 88.7 FM if you happen to be traveling in that part of the state, or if you live in or near Kaycee.
