TUNED IN: Notes from Bob Davis, executive director of High Plains Public Radio

HPPR listeners love public radio on the High Plains, and we love our listeners.

HPPR listeners love public radio on the High Plains, and we love our listeners.

Gain Knowledge,

Grow Community,

Give Today.

That's the theme of HPPR's Fall Membership Campaign. It's a nice summation of how High Plains Public Radio serves its listeners across the High Plains.

Whether it’s high quality regional, national and international news or unique music programs, member-supported HPPR provides essential radio for the communities it serves.

HPPR's news programs present information at the speed of calm. Morning Edition and All Things Considered - as well as stories from our reporters covering Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Kansas - go deeper, exploring beyond the quick-hit headlines and political rhetoric.  This quality news coverage is costly, and that is why High Plains Public Radio needs the support of listeners.

Add the great variety of our exclusive music shows to valuable and trustworthy news, and HPPR is the soundtrack to your life on the High Plains.
