Celebrate 60 Years with Utah Public Radio and Support its Auction

Utah State University’s own Utah Public Radio is celebrating 60 years of broadcasting with an online auction. Utah Public Radio — or UPR as it is generally known — was the first public broadcasting affiliate in Utah.


As part of the 60-year celebration, an online auction is taking place with proceeds benefitting local programming and UPR’s student internship program for aspiring reporters. UPR boasts award-winning regional news and national programming, including Performance Today and NPR’s Morning Edition and the weekend’s popular Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me.


“We have found that the auction is a popular way for listeners to support UPR,” said Bryan Earl, UPR’s development director. “It’s also a way to spotlight the region’s talented artists. Most of the auction items and services are donated and we appreciate this support.”


Auction items from both Utah and national sources include ceramics, artwork, vacation stays, consumer electronics, restaurant gift certificates, personal services, recreational opportunities, event tickets, jewelry and books from authors featured on UPR interviews.


Earl invites everyone to peruse what’s available at the auction list or to add their own item or services. Items can been seen via the station’s website.


UPR’s 60th Anniversary Auction continues through the evening of Tuesday, June 18.
