KEEPING CPR ON THE AIR STATEWIDE

Throughout the year, CPR's engineering team continually monitors and maintains our statewide network to keep you connected to the news and classical music programming you value. During the winter months, with many transmitter sites located near or at the top of mountains, this work can become more complicated with extensive snowfall. Take a moment and visit our Facebook page to view photos of a recent trip to the 89.9 FM transmitter site, located on a mountain northwest of Vail.

FROM KENNY ROGERS TO "MORNING EDITION"

CPR News Host Mike Lamp's first job after earning his journalism degree was "spinning Kenny Rogers and Crystal Gayle at an all-night country station." He initially turned to public radio as a listener before becoming a full-time journalist.

"A friend from college was working at the public radio station in Phoenix. He moved back to what has become a very respected NPR affiliate at our old university in Flagstaff, and I began working there too, in 1996. Two weeks after I started, I was covering President Clinton speaking on the rim of the Grand Canyon."

Learn more about Mike, one of CPR's morning news hosts since 2000.

RESEARCH ON LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF PRESCHOOL TO BE FEATURED

From American RadioWorks comes “Early Lessons,” an hour-long program focusing on the results of a long-term study on the impacts of preschool. The Perry Preschool Project is one of the most famous education experiments of the last 50 years. It asked whether preschool could boost the IQ scores of poor African American children and prevent them from failing in school. The surprising results are now challenging widely-held notions about what helps people succeed - in school and in life. This program airs on CPR's “Showcase” Sunday, Jan. 30 at 2pm and Monday, Jan. 31 at 9pm. Can't make either of those times? American RadioWorks has made many other resources about the Perry Preschool Project available online.
