Friday at UPR we're giving away another package to the UPR StoryCorps event in May, with your support. Each person who fills out and submits our pledge form will be entered in to win the escape package:
It's spring pledge drive, hand in hand with our 60th anniversary. We're celebrating what makes Utah Public Radio work- our members and listeners.
You are UPR- you provide the means for us to gather quality news and information. You provide the means for us to reach out in our community. You are the beneficiaries of our work, and we couldn't do it without you.
UPR and Dixie Regional Medical Center are sponsoring the StoryCorps recording booth in St. George May 2 to June 1, and the slots are ready to be taken!
StoryCorps allows two people to enter the recording booth and interview each other for 45 minutes. At the end of the interview, they receive a CD of the interview, and a copy of their interview is placed in the Library of Congress.
Jill Aoki and Anthony Lemon, who graduated with master’s degrees in accounting from USU in 2012, will receive the prestigious Elijah Watt Sells Award for their high scores on the Uniform CPA Examination.
Only 39 people out of more than 92,000 candidates who took the Uniform CPA Examination in 2012 scored above 95.5, and two of those high scorers were graduates of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University.
The results are in for the end of our "March Madness" game with Public Radio programming at Utah Public Radio. The race began in March with 32 of UPR's programs. One of our locally produced shows, Science Questions by Sheri Quinn, made it all the way to the final four, but was beat out by NPR's Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me to make the end.
But now the votes are finally in, and in a very close race, All Things Considered has won the game! With an 8 percent lead, the show took over Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me.
In conjunction with the 2nd Friday Gallery Walk on April 12, you’re invited to join staff of Utah Public Radio at our downtown studio, 43 South Main Street in Logan, as we feature watercolor paintings of artist and retired educator Lester Lee in an exhibit entitled “Abandoned.”Lester Lee is a self-taught stage scenery artist and has painted over 50 sets and Rodger’s Memorial Theater and other theaters in Utah.
