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, Native Voice One, and American Public Media. Some NPR, PRI and BBC World Service programming includes Morning Edition, All Things Considered, BBC World Service, and many others.

Wyoming Public Radio also produces Classical Wyoming, a 24-hour classical format. It is available as an analog radio service in Laramie, Rock Springs and Lander. It is also available on HD-2 throughout the state.

In September of 2016, Wyoming Public Radio launched a fourth radio service named Wyoming Sounds. Wyoming Sounds is a rock-based format with emphasis on singer-songwriters and a wide variety of styles including acoustic, folk, blues, soul, reggae, world and americana music. It is carried as an analog radio service in Laramie, Torrington, Lander, Riverton and Worland. It is also available on HD-3 channels throughout the state. Its website is wyomingsounds.org.

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.

Stations[edit]

The ones in HD have a station name of WPR -FM.
