Valarie Smith

Program Host, Songbirds

As an avid world traveler and galivanter, Valarie never lost sight of which way was home.  A Native to Western Kansas, she has been pursuing a life long career in the many forms of expressive arts including radio, photography, videography, graphics and design. Graduating from Western State College with a bachelors in Art, Valarie once again returns to percolate her love for High Plains Public Radio. Involved with HPPR since 2006, an inquiry about a drive way moment landed her a position as local host of Weekend Edition. Having worn many hats at HPPR, from Director of Development to regional program producer, Valarie now remains in the HPPR family as the host of Songbirds. (Oh, and she is currently pursuing a career in mental health counseling, so stay tuned for more wonderful developments with this High Plains hero.)
