Jennifer Ugalde


Jennifer Ugalde joined HPPR’s Amarillo Studio in September 2019 as a senior intern through Amarillo Independent School District’s PRO Internship program. She has been enjoying the opportunity to contribute to public media and local broadcasting, especially as a host for HPPR’s Living Room Concert Series. “It was exciting to see how live music concerts actually function,” she said. “I had a blast learning all the different ways HPPR promotes the arts.” In the studio, Jennifer writes and records audio promos. She also designs social media marketing campaigns; volunteers at HPPR events; and helps organize the influx of music submissions received by Jenny Inzerillo, Music Director. “I once got one that was a naked CD stuffed into a sandwich bag, with a very weird note,” she said. “I’m not sure if Jenny played it on her show. Ha!” When she’s not at HPPR, you can find her volunteering at Tascosa High School’s leadership program, crying during reruns of Grey’s Anatomy, or working at her job where she loves meeting new people and helping others.

We were happy to welcome back Kara Word, Director of Development at The Parc, to High Plains Morning this week to remind folks that this Saturday night, November 16th, they’ll host the 5th annual one-of-a-kind art show fundraiser,

What’s better than walking upstairs and seeing a team of Clydesdales tromping up Polk Street just outside of HPPR’s Amarillo studio? The answer: not much! We were thrilled to witness the exhibition of the Budweiser Clydesdales, on parade for the WRCA World Championship Ranch Rodeo. Thanks to Beth Duke, Executive Director at Center City of Amarillo, for letting us know. On Nov. 6, we were able to catch a few great shots. We hope you enjoy them!
