A message from Caroline Ballard:

Hi listeners,

After five wonderful years, today is my last day on air at Wyoming Public Radio. It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to bring you news and feature stories, the always unpredictable Wyoming weather, and of course the occasional pun (sorry about that!). I’ll be just a hop and a skip over the state line – hosting All Things Considered for KUER in Salt Lake City. If you’re ever driving through in the afternoon, tune in for a familiar voice.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your mornings – your commutes, breakfasts, cups of coffee, shower time – all of it. I’ll always carry a piece of Wyoming with me. And one last time, I hope you have a great day.

Best wishes,
Caroline Ballard
