Board of Directors

Past Chair (2012 – 2015)

Over the six years of working on the WXPR Board I continue to be amazed at the energy and enthusiasm generated by our Station.  People from far and wide love our unique music and news stories and our affiliation with NPR.  As I thank people for their contributions I see that they live in many different states and surprisingly in other countries.  So it is easy to be passionate about our little radio station.  The Board I work with are hard -working and dedicated, not to mention fun.  Protecting this Station is serious business and I am proud of the work the Staff and Board have accomplished in seeing that our beautiful building and our great voice continues.

Richard “Dick” Timmons, host of Midday Classics for the past 15 years, has died at age 84.  His dedication and commitment to the WXPR family will be sorely missed.

Dick was passionate about music. He could talk about jazz and big band with authority, but classical was his true love.  He played the piano, and early in his life had played the standup bass.  Upon retiring as publisher of the Rhinelander Daily News (currently named Northwoods River News), Dick showed up at the doors of WXPR asking to volunteer as on-air host for one of the classical programs.
