Annie Ropeik to Host October Event  

This October, NHPR and its partner Stay Work Play celebrate ten years of the Rising Stars Awards. Each year, the much-anticipated awards ceremony recognizes talented young people from throughout New Hampshire who are making a difference by choosing to stay, work and play in the Granite State. In addition, companies and programs that create impact through recruiting and retaining young people are also honored.

For many public radio listeners, Morning Edition is a staple part of their days. As they prepare for the workday, the school day or their daily commute, the long running program may be the first encounter they have each day with the latest news and stories from their communities, across the nation and around the world. For 40 years, the signature musical sound of Morning Edition was an iconic theme first composed by BJ Leiderman and later arranged by musician Jim Pugh.

Cool companies, up and coming entrepreneurs, and civic leaders making a difference will be honored Thursday, October 11, at the Rising Stars Awards ceremony. Each year, Stay Work Play recognizes and celebrates the wonderful talent in New Hampshire’s young professional community, and highlights initiatives, businesses and programs that help young people thrive in the Granite State. NHPR is a proud partner of Stay Work Play for this annual celebration.

After buying raffle tickets to support NHPR’s annual Summer Car Raffle, Greta Johansson of Concord was surprised and delighted to come out the big winner in the 2017 Car Raffle. When she went to claim her prize and pick out a new car, the federal employee from Concord knew exactly what she wanted, and in a very bold shade of blue.

Q: Greta! You’ve had nearly a year to enjoy your new car. Share with us what you chose and why.
