"Investment in Wyoming Public Radio returns great benefits to the people of Wyoming. Education reporting, coverage of important, newsworthy events, and Wyoming Public ad Radio's work in music and the arts, are but a few of the returns you receive with your investment to WPR. Please continue to support this wonderful service to our state."

Achievements
The Wyoming Public Radio Engineering Department is proud to announce their newest transmit site is now on air and broadcasting from Mt. Hickey in Southeast Wyoming. This transmitter will provide service to listeners in southwestern Wyoming: Mountain View, Lyman, and Fort Bridger. The project was spearheaded by staff engineer Reid Fletcher.
Sometimes our biggest achievements occur in strange places. The Wyoming Public Media engineering team was able to untangle this situation in Lander, WY. Wyoming's fierce winds folded back this satellite dish, but the city of Lander was patient until Wyoming Public Media was back on the air.
New Faces
Wyoming Public Media would like to officially welcome a couple new members to our team.

Wyoming Public Media
"Starting the new fiscal year off on a good note, I bring your attention to two upcoming developments. The first is Wyoming Sounds, WPM's newest radio signal in Laramie, and online throughout Wyoming and beyond at wyomingpublicmedia.org. Listeners have asked for an expanded Morning Music format, and Wyoming Sounds provides this music in a 24-hour service. Thanks to the Guthrie Foundation for their support in launching Wyoming Sounds in Albany County. WPM couldn't have launched this service without the foundation investment. In the next several years, we hope to expand  Wyoming Sounds to other locations around the state, but in the meantime, the service will be available online. The second development involves bringing the public radio experience directly to you in 2016/2017. Ira Glass will be speaking at the new Laramie High School Auditorium on October 15, 2016 and Garrison Keillor will present his electric one-man show in the Arts and Sciences Auditorium at UW on April 7, 2017. Hearing these two public radio icons on radio is exciting, but getting to see them in person is electrifying."
