Wyoming Public Radio (WPR) is the statewide public radio network in Wyoming. Licensed to the University of Wyoming, it is operated by UW's Outreach School.

Programming and operation[edit]

Wyoming Public Radio was founded in 1966, and the station's format is similar to that of many other American public radio stations. Although licensed to the University, the network does not produce student-derived programming. Twice a year, in the Fall and in the Spring, the station conducts Pledge Drives, which is where a majority of the station's budget comes from.

From its studios in the Outreach School on the UW campus in Laramie, the network produces local news and music programming, mostly consisting of jazz, classical and adult album alternative music. The network also airs a variety of syndicated programs from National Public Radio, Public Radio International, and American Public Media. Some NPR, PRI and BBC World Service programming includes Morning Edition, Talk of the Nation, All Things Considered, BBC World Service, and many others.

WPR is the only public radio network produced in Wyoming. Other public radio networks and stations (including Yellowstone Public Radio, KUER-FM, KUNC, and KUVO) also reach into parts of the state.
