Jessie joined WXPR in 2003. She feels thrilled to work with such a talented and dedicated group of volunteers and staff, and enjoys meeting and getting to know the supporters that make WXPR possible. When she’s not at WXPR, she’s reading, camping, skiing, or spending time with her two sons and husband Jay. WXPR listeners hear Jessie on various music shows, during membership drives, weekly on All Things Considered, and occasionally on Morning Edition

WXPR recently made stop at the Old School Arts and Learning Center in Rhinelander to record a Christmas Sing Along with local performer David Dall.

Dall is a professional performer and early childhood educator. He has produced several CD's including Music is a Friend of Mine, Box Under the Bed, and Still Playin'.  His most recent is a Christmas CD entitled Hometown Holiday.

  On the first day of WXPR Christmas my radio friends gave to me...

Pledge your support to WXPR during our "5 Days of WXPR Christmas"  (December 9th through the 13th).  Each day you pledge, you'll be entered into a new drawing. We will have something fun each day.

Plus, tune in Saturday to hear live Polka and Bluegrass!

Support WXPR 

Happy Holidays! 

Become a WXPR Sustaining Member! Pledge $5.00 a month and as our thanks WXPR will send you the Our Wisconsin 2015 Calendar

The pictures in this calendar make a solid contention that Wisconsin is one of the prettiest states in the nation. But for those of us who live here, that case is already closed.

Flipping through the pages of this calendar is like taking a photo tour of the seasons...from the promise of spring...the warmth of summer...the color of the purity of winter.

Starting Monday, December 1 listeners will hear a local 6:00 p.m. newscast on WXPR.  If you have a busy afternoon and can't tune in during All Things Considered, you can now catch up on local news at 6:00 p.m. Plus, our central Wisconsin listeners can now hear WXPR news.

There’s a structure to NPR newsmagazine programs on WXPR that’s about to change.

NPR news shows are governed by a ‘clock.’ These graphical representations of each hour lay out what happens in a program and when

Whether it’s a newscast, A Writer’s Almanac, Marketplace Morning Report or a report from a community contributor, it happens at a precise time according to the clock.

This clock coordinates between hosts in NPR’s studios in Washington and WXPR’s hosts, so we don’t end up talking over each other.

Listen to Morning Edition while you sip your morning coffee in our new WXPR Diner Mug. Available for a pledge of $120 or more. Thanks!
