MISHAWAKA – Which member of WVPE’s team won an award this week?  Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!  Tom Labuzienski, an underwriting consultant with 88.1 WVPE Public Radio, received the honor as one of the “Faces of Tourism” at the 2018 Visit South Bend Mishawaka Tourism Awards Reception.  The award honors individuals dedicated to promoting the area and having "a positive impact"

on the local tourism industry:

A semi truck struck an overhead guy wire at the intersection of Reedy Drive and Jeanwood Drive, just north of County Road six in Elkhart last night, knocking out power in the area.

The Elkhart Area Career Center and WVPE were impacted by the outage. WVPE lost power, satellite connection and audio for about 15 minutes starting at about 5:30 p.m. On-air audio was restored on generator power at about 5:45.

Here's a heartfelt (and, yes goofy) thanks from your friends at WVPE for all the support during our recently concluded Spring Membership Campaign. The real heartbeat of any public radio station is listener members, and if you didn't get a chance to make a contribution during our campaign you can do so by clicking the green button up there in the right hand corner. 

We made this video (and made absolute fools of ourselves) to say thank you! Enjoy :)

 

Garrison Keillor will not perform at Goshen College in May following allegations of inappropriate behavior against the popular public radio personality.

Goshen College says it is cancelling the performance scheduled for May 6th as part of Goshen College Music Center’s performing arts series.

Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media severed ties from Keillor after allegation surfaced of inappropriate behavior during his time as the producer of ‘A Prairie Home Companion.’
