MTPR Student Reporters Win SPJ Awards

Apr 14, 2016

Two MTPR student reporters have won Mark of Excellence Awards from the Society of Professional Journalists. Sean Robb is currently a student reporter at MTPR. Cheri Trusler is a former student reporter for MTPR and a UM School of Journalism graduate.

Montana Public Radio finished our 50th anniversary year with an amazing rally in listener support, reaching $1.54 million. We also had three sold-out performances (Ira Glass, Bill Harley and Garrison Keillor), and held our first short fiction contest. It has been exciting to see all the ways that our shared love for Montana Public Radio has manifested. I can’t say often enough that financial support from deeply committed listeners like you is what makes MTPR succeed.

It's time to "spring forward" again, Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 2:00 a.m.
(PD)

Like it or not, it's nearly time to change our clocks again. Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 13 at 2:00 a.m. Don't forget to "spring forward" — set your clock ahead one hour — or you'll end up missing "Wait Wait," (and brunch) on Sunday morning.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at "Backroads of Montana" during the 25th anniversary special. William Marcus returns from retirement to take you on a journey down the Backroads of Montana.
