HPPR hosts & contributors
After over 32 years of service to the High Plains, there's now a whole generation of "backseat listeners" who grew up listening to HPPR from their childhood car seats and now continue to have public radio as part of their life. Making a planned gift to HPPR will ensure that public radio continues to be part of the quality of life in your community and across the High Plains for generations to come.
Your bequest can leave your community a legacy of in-depth news and information, timeless music, intelligent discussion, civil dialogue, and curios inquiry about the wider world. And it will be a legacy that reaches residents at home, at work, on the road and in the fields, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for years to come.
