Guy Raz, host of NPR's TED Radio Hour, joined TPR and our guests on Saturday, May 30, at the Whitley Center at the Oblate School of Theology for TPR's annual Pinnacle Dinner. Raz spoke about his time reporting abroad for NPR from London and Berlin, and what he's discovered as a host at NPR, first of Weekend All Things Considered, and then as host of TED Radio Hour. He shared his experiences from the stage in a formal presentation, and during the event in conversation with guests.

The 2015 Texas Public Radio Salute to Supporters took place on Thursday, June 4th, at the Southwest School of Art. Representatives from nearly 60 of TPR's business supporters and non-profit community partners joined us for an evening reception featuring food by Mike Bomberg's Spice of Life catering.

TPR would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the  businesses, professionals and community partners who help us bring public radio to San Antonio, the Hill Country and the surrounding areas.

The Houston Press Club honored Texas Public Radio with six trophies for on-air and online work this month at their annual awards ceremony, held June 6 on the campus of Rice University in Houston. With competition from news organizations state-wide, the Lone Star Awards are given annually for excellence in print, television, radio and online journalism. First place awards went to David Martin Davies and Paul Flahive for Best Talk Show and Best Public Affairs programming for two episodes of “The Source,” KSTX 89.1 FM’s afternoon talk program.

UPDATE, 4/29/15: We have changed the venue from the Pearl Amphitheatre to the Pearl Stable because of the threat of rain.

On the eve of San Antonio’s Big Give SA, Texas Public Radio is celebrating area non-profits with a “THINK BIG Movie Marathon.” This official kick off event will take place on Monday, May 4 from 7 P.M. to midnight at the Pearl Stable and include a special screening of three "big" films: Big, The Big Lebowski, and Pee-wees Big Adventure.
