Montana Public Radio requires many pieces of the puzzle to keep this great station on the air. From our program producers, news team members, and our technicians who keep our equipment running to our fundraising staff – the MTPR team works around the clock to ensure this station is everything you expect it be when you tune in. But most importantly YOU, our member-listeners, are the most important piece of the puzzle and our most valued member of the team.

"'Richest Hill,' a new podcast from Montana Public Radio, made me care intensely about the former copper-mining boomtown of Butte, Montana—and urgently want to understand it better. Reported and written by Nora Saks and edited and produced by Nick Mott and Eric Whitney, “Richest Hill” has a mood of straightforward friendliness, but it’s also full of surprises ...

Thank You Flathead Valley Listeners!
