Can you believe we’ve been making radio shows for 5 years?! It’s true. And we couldn’t have done it without you.
Join the WNPR and Where We Live crew, along with our favorite guests and listeners as we raise a glass and toast to 5 years of creating “radio with a sense of place.”
Hooker Brewing Company is brewing a special batch of top secret “Where We Live” beer, Plan B is providing delicious appetizers, and String Theorie – just voted “Best New Band” by Hartford Advocate – will be jamming.
We’re asking each attendee for a donation of $5 or more to reserve your spot.
Please register here.
In honor of our anniversary, you may have noticed we’ve rolled out a snazzy new logo. It was designed by the amazing Peter Good and Jan Cummings.
And now, a photo gallery of (really good looking) folks who have been a part of Where We Live over the years. (Warning and Apology: I stole most of these photos from Facebook.)
After a long career at WNPR, doing a million different things, Evette Cook became THE original producer for Where We Live.
At one time Diane Orson was a producer for The Faith Middleton Show. She lent her expertise in getting Where We Live off the ground.
If you started at WNPR as an intern, chances are that George Goodrich taught you all you know. He was our original technical director. George traded in his microphone for a stethescope. He is now a nurse.
Melissa Branzburg was the first intern-turned-producer for Where We Live. She loves Japan and flamingos. Melissa left us to get her MBA. Smart woman.
Libby Franklin came to us from the Documentary Studies program at Duke. She produced more "future of" shows than anyone in the history of talkshow production. Libby left us to move with her hubby to St. Louis, where she works on another radio show.
Josie Holtzman was a fellow Salt Institute Alumna. She made the move back to Connecticut from the BIG city. Josie produced some of our best music-themed shows. She is now back in NYC doing radio magic.
And that brings us to now:
Catie, Senior Producer of making coffee and bossing people around
Our newest addition to the team, Tucker Ives. He was a former intern and a radio pro at Ithaca College.
