NextUp

We've started a Young Professionals program because we want to meet you. We want to hang out and exchange ideas and smart conversation - whether in cyberspace, over the air, or through events.

We're calling it NextUp. NextUp exists to cultivate the next generation of WYSO listeners, volunteers and members. You're not trapped in the back seat of your parents' car listening to NPR anymore. You're listening now, on your own. You're next.

Learn More About Our Events:

  • Brew & News is a new panel discussion series hosted by WYSO’s NextUp. The semi-annual series will rotate between a Public Policy theme in the fall and Environment in the spring. Each series will be hosted at a local brewery or restaurant serving local brews. We see this an opportunity for our generation to bring important topics into focus for further conversation within our community. We need you to join the NextUp Brews & News committee. Committee members will work with WYSO news staff to choose the topic, identify experts in the field to be on the panel, seek a facilitator, and plan additional event details. These events will be open to the public.
  • NextUp Spring Concert is a new concert series hosted by WYSO’s NextUp. The concert will raise funds for WYSO while highlighting our rich local music scene and honoring the station's tradition of live, local music. We need you to join the NextUp Spring Concert Committee. Committee members will work with WYSO music staff to choose a line-up and venue, promote the concert and plan additional event details. This event will be open to the public.
  • We are keeping the NextUp Winter Party alive. Just like in 2014, we will gather at WYSO headquarters to have fun and maybe even network? This is an event to enjoy everything we accomplished over the year. This event is only open to NextUp members.
