A New Year, A New Newsletter

Jan 12, 2017

Welcome to a new year and a new way to communicate with you about everything happening here at Public Radio Tulsa!  Every month, this e-newsletter will bring you information about special events, special programs, news, ways to support Public Radio Tulsa, and much more.
 
You have been added to this e-mail list because you are a friend and supporter of PRT.  We will never share or sell your information to anyone, and you are welcome to opt out. But I do hope you will keep up with us and encourage others to sign up via publicradiotulsa.org.

As you may have heard, we’ve had a few changes at Public Radio Tulsa, and more are in the works. Most prominently, “1A” has now replaced the “Diane Rehm Show,” and while no one can replace Diane, new host Joshua Johnson brings new energy and engagement in his role as host, with the same great roster of guests that you’ve come to expect from this WAMU-hosted program.

This fall also marked the start of a new era of “A Prairie Home Companion,” and while Garrison Keillor is equally unreplaceable, new host Chris Thile is keeping some of the features we’ve come to expect from APHC, but revitalizing the musical quality of the program with some tremendous musical guests ranging from Paul Simon, and Ben Folds, to Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Ranger, and Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer.  With these changes, and all of our programming, I welcome your feedback and ideas. You can contact me at rich-fisher@publicmediatulsa.org.
 
As 2017 gets underway, you can continue to expect to hear the very best in news, information, and music programming. Depend on us to bring you the news that’s most important, objective, and complete, whether the story is here in Tulsa or on the other side of the globe.  Count on compelling storytelling on life in our contemporary world, from ordinary people to entertainment, literary, and political figures. And listen for music that defines the best of our culture, be it classical, jazz, “Red Dirt”, Western Swing, or “Roots” music. 
 
Below, you can see some of the programs and events coming up soon. Thank you again for your steadfast support in 2016, and thank you for spending your quality radio time with us.
 

Best for 2017,    

Rich Fisher
General Manager
