Patty Fitzpatrick

Board of Directors/Your Favorites Host

I’ve been a fan of WXPR since I moved to the area in 1995. My affection for the station has grown over the years—I’ve moved from listener, to donor, to casual volunteer to board member and music host. Since my retirement in 2013 I’ve been able to give more time to the station. One of the joys of my week is hosting Friday Your Favorites. I moved to the Northwoods to be nearer my family and now it’s definitely home. I don’t want to live anywhere else and am grateful to have such a great radio station available in this beautiful, rural part of the country. I feel like I have the best of both worlds—access to all the information and music I want without the awful traffic jams and bustle of metropolitan life. A listener from Merrill said it best, “If there were only one radio station in the world, I’d pick WXPR.”
