In the sports world, while concussion awareness is on the rise and current diagnostic protocols are improving, concussion diagnosis still relies heavily on symptoms and self-reporting by athletes. Now, a team of scientists at the University of Montana is attempting to develop a blood test to provide a definitive diagnosis for concussions.

Everyone has a story, but how do great storytellers draw listeners to even the most mundane stories? That's what Ira Glass, host and producer of "This American Life" demonstrated Saturday during his "Reinventing Radio" show in front of a sold out audience at the University of Montana in Missoula.

We'd like to welcome Dave Dennis, MTPR's new corporate support manager.

Dave has worked with marketing and media since high school as an on-air newscaster, DJ, and in media consulting, placement, and creative. 

You could win one of eight VIP ticket packages for Reinventing Radio: An Evening With Ira Glass, on September 12, 2015 in Missoula, Montana. Winners will receive a ticket to the show, and a pass to the VIP reception before the show, giving them a chance to rub elbows with Ira Glass. Tell us how you listen to "This American Life" for a chance to win.

August was a stormy month at Montana Public Radio. On the evening of August 10, when Missoula experienced a remarkable thunderstorm with hurricane level winds, the MTPR team was all hands on deck keeping the station on air. Then 11 days later, a lightning storm crashed both the primary and backup transmitters for Missoula’s 89.1 frequency, and one intrepid engineer had a harrowing night on the mountain.

Join John's friends and collegues at a memorial party, Tuesday, August 25 from 6:00 - 10:00 p.m. at Missoula's Bonner Park. Celebrate and remember John's life with music, dancing, and a spaghetti feed for all.
