UW TV Program Examines Economy, Adventure

March 17, 2017

Randy Bruns, Cheyenne-Laramie County Corporation for Economic Development CEO, will discuss challenges to diversifying the state’s economy during the information program “Wyoming Signatures” Sunday, March 26, at 5:30 p.m. on Wyoming Public Television.

Bruns says even though the city of Cheyenne has been successful in creating jobs, many who work in Laramie County are commuting from elsewhere.

In another segment, hard-core adventure writer Mark Jenkins, from Laramie, a University of Wyoming writer-in-residence, will be featured. Jenkins is known for climbing Mount Everest, his “Hard Way” columns in Outside Magazine and his books related to his worldwide adventures.

In the Wyoming Signatures interview, Jenkins, a National Geographic writer, will give a behind-the-scenes-look at footnoting, fact-checking and other aspects of his life as a journalist.

Also, Bryan Shader, who oversees UW’s research computing efforts and is a liaison with the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne, will be interviewed by Rachel Wagner.

Shader, UW’s special assistant to the vice president for research and economic development, and professor of mathematics, will discuss how the supercomputer helps researchers around the world, UW students and the state’s economy.

“Wyoming Signatures” is produced by UWTV of the UW Outreach School. Wyoming PBS can be seen over the air and via cable or satellite in communities throughout Wyoming. A complete list of channels may be found at
