MPR Open House Quote of the Day

Posted at 12:56 PM on January 21, 2007 by Valerie Kahler
Filed under: The blog

Okay, first let me say that I LOVE our listeners! I can't believe how many people shuffled through the snow flurries in Saint Paul to come by MPR's new headquarters for our 40th Anniversary open house. Tons and tons and tons - from longtime members to infants in strollers and everyone in between. Even though I've been up since 3:30 this morning, I'm totally amped and filled with a wonderful mix of joy and pride. I'm so proud of what we do at MPR every day, but if I had a vest the buttons would have burst right off because of our MEMBERS. We have the most loyal, active, engaged listeners in the country. And surely the most good-looking, strong and above-average.


So. Jeff Esworthy said he got a great quote from a guest today and wants to make t-shirts.

"Minnesota Public Radio Rules the World"

Though I don't think we're actually headed toward total world domination, I think I can safely say that MPR and its listeners rule!

THANK YOU.
