On To Grad School
During her year and a half with WPM, Moriah Hager brought a strong sense of member relations to WPM and helped move the fundraising operation to a new level. We will miss her sunny personality and can-do attitude. Moriah has decided to pursue her Master's Degree in Psychology at the University of Wyoming. We are so proud of her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
"It was a pleasure to work with WPR and all the outstanding nationally recognized staff." - Moriah Hager
Ultra Petroleum Filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company is Wyoming's largest gas producer, by volume, but has struggled with high debt loads and low natural gas prices in recent months.
Natalie Jesse worked with Diana Denison and Anna Rader on WPM's 50th Anniversary Historical Timeline. She also assisted WPM's engineering team with video shoots at the 2016 Shepard Symposium on Social Justice and WPM's Women In Wyoming's Legislature Forum.

"We welcome Dr. Laurie Nichols to Wyoming, and wish her all the best as UW's 26th President. She comes at a time when Wyoming's economy is challenged and state budets cut. WPM will also be affected, but we are immensely fortunate to receive support from thousands of listeners who insist on a strong public media service in Wyoming during boom and bust. Amidst economic challenges, WPM still connects us all, brings the world to Wyoming, and Wyoming to the world. We will do our best to live up to these expectations."
