Driveway Moment: The Future of Public Radio

Credit Elisabeth Gee / Utah Public Radio

Kerry Bringhurst is the interim station manager and news director at Utah Public Radio. 

"I listen for reasons that may not be the reasons others listen.  Working with students is thrilling.  When I hear their reports, I know what they have been through to capture the audio, write the script, and produce and edit.  I can measure their learning through their content. When I hear a catchy edit and a quality quote I feel a thrill that is beyond explanation.  Our student interns are the future of public radio.  I take pride in knowing UPR is contributing to the academic future of these creative and curious members of society."

Driveway Moment: Don't Give Up

Credit Elisabeth Gee / Utah Public Radio

About a month ago, I was listening to Access Utah and Tom was interviewing Pauline Hansen whose husband has schizophrenia. For the first 10 years of their marriage, Hansen said she didn’t notice any unusual behavior, then one day he told her he had a dream. In the dream, they were supposed to win a game. He asked Hansen to put furniture in their garage and he wouldn’t talk to their children because he thought they were from the opposing side.

Although some of the things Hansen’s husband asked her to do were strange and she didn’t know what was going on, she stuck through it. She is still married to her husband and she loves him. Divorce wasn’t even a question in her mind.

Driveway Moment: Human Connections

Credit Elisabeth Gee / Utah Public Radio

  Nora Zambreno is the Development and Public Relations Specialist at Utah Public Radio.

One of my most recent “Driveway Moments” was hearing Teri and Rich Guy featured on Utah StoryCorps. I know them, but I didn’t know how they started their family. Hearing about the adoptive process, the arrival of their daughter and post-adoptive pregnancy—a surprise!—were tender and moving. It reminded me about the value of being able to share the things that connect us as human beings. How beautiful and how lucky we are that public radio helps do that for us.

Join Us: Learn About Genealogy, And Become A Source Friday Night

Utah Public Radio wants to know "Who do You think You are?" -- a radio version of the popular television series where you search for family connections. From beginning to end, we want to know why your family history matters, how you search for your roots, and what you have learned from your family tree. Share your stories with us by becoming a source.

We will also have a booth at the genealogy event at the Logan Tabernacle Friday night. Three local “celebrities” will trace their ancestral roots at 7:00 p.m. With the help of expert genealogists, Sister Marilyn of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, the Rev. Dr. Stephen Sturgeon, Vicar of St. John’s Episcopal Church, and Rev. Derek Forbes, Associate Pastor of the Logan First Presbyterian Church, will become better acquainted with their ancestors, and they have invited us to the event.
