Tell Us Your Listening Story

Listener Stories 161 to 161

I discovered MPR about 2 years ago. For me it was the most comprehensive way to get news about what's happening in Minnesota and MSP. The programming on MPR (and NPR) are much more responsible than local television news, which navigates through its stories in such a brief and sensational way that a viewer will never be left with enough information to form the understanding of today's world.

I so regularly listened to MPR that a couple of years ago I decided to become a member. I was so happy to have found the station. I've moved to Western Europe, and discovered that I can still listen over the Internet. MPR is still the best way for me to get news from home. I especially liked listening to the hourly updates in the winter, particularly the temperature.

Anyway to some it up, now I'm thousands of miles from home, but when I hear MPR over the net I'm reminded back to those comfortable times back in Minneapolis listening to my news before work, and the great weekend programming.
