Jessie Dick


Jessie joined WXPR in 2003. She grew up in southern Wisconsin, but her Grandparents have always called the Northwoods home.

She feels thrilled to work with such a talented and dedicated group of volunteers and staff, and enjoys meeting and getting to know the supporters that make WXPR happen.

When she’s not at WXPR, she’s reading, biking, skiing, or spending time with her husband and son.  

WXPR listeners hear Jessie during fun-drives, weekly on All Things Considered, and occasionally on Morning Edition

Jessie holds a BS in Design from Colorado State University.

Familiar voices at new times when NPR's show clocks change on November 17

There’s a structure to NPR newsmagazine programs on WXPR that’s about to change.

NPR news shows are governed by a ‘clock.’ These graphical representations of each hour lay out what happens in a program and when

Whether it’s a newscast, A Writer’s Almanac, Marketplace Morning Report or a report from a community contributor, it happens at a precise time according to the clock.

This clock coordinates between hosts in NPR’s studios in Washington and WXPR’s hosts, so we don’t end up talking over each other.
