Sueann Ramella Steps Away From The Morning Edition Chair

Nov 26, 2014
Sueann Ramella

Before you read this, Sueann wants you to listen to this:

That's how she wants to be remembered. Rapping awkwardly and hitting her head against the mic.

But here's how we'll remember her.

After almost 15 years on the air, Sueann Ramella is stepping away from the mic - temporarily, to spend more time with her young family. While you won't be hearing her, you will still be able to enjoy her subtle style and mischievous wit as she continues to help guide our social media platforms.

Remembering Tom Magliozzi, Beloved Tappet Brother

Nov 4, 2014
Richard Howard

Tom Magliozzi who, along with his brother Ray, hosted NPR’s hit comedy show Car Talk for the last 37 years, died Monday morning, November 3, 2014, from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. “Turns out he wasn’t kidding,” said Ray. “He really couldn’t remember last week’s puzzler.” • • • Tom Magliozzi was born June 28, 1937, in an East Cambridge, Massachusetts neighborhood filled with other Italian immigrant families. It was there that he and his younger brother Ray picked up the uniquely Boston-Italian style of expressing affection through friendly insults and teasing.

Thank you to the more than 2,200 listeners who generously became sustaining members, new members or renewed pledges. If you didn't get a chance to pledge yet,  there's still time. Pledge here.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PLEDGE! Twelve and a half  hours – that’s all the time it took to reach the Super Thursday goal of 2,000 pledges!

We're receiving Super Thursday pledges from all across the Northwest, and beyond! We made a map to show you where our pledges are coming from. 

On Thursday, April 24 at 7:30, join Northwest Public Radio at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in Tacoma, for a live taping of From the Top! Get your tickets now.

The transmitter serving Wenatchee and Ellensburg on 90.7 is running at low power and the signal is very weak. As it serves as the audio source of KHNW 88.3 in Chelan/Waterville/Manson, that signal is also compromised.

Engineers are unable to access KNWR to investigate and fix this problem, because the road tothe transmitter site is impassable due to deep snow and ice. They're keeping a close eye on temperatures, and as soon as warmer temperatures allow access, they are ready to take the snow cat up the mountain.

As soon as we reach the goal of  2,000 pledges, we'll end the fund drive.  Just ZERO more and this drive will be OVER! Thank YOU.

 Your pledge now will take this drive one step closer to ending early.

Thank you for listening to Northwest Public Radio, and for your generous support!

With listener feedback as our guide to this year’s program changes, some new and exciting programs have joined the Sunday lineup on the NPR News service, while reducing the number of repeat broadcasts.
