News for a Growing Idaho

Jillian Moroney and her two young boys

Boise State Public Radio is a voice for Idaho that educates, informs, inspires and entertains.

Idaho matters to Jillian Moroney. A clinical professor in the Boise State University School of Public Service, she’s also a fourth-generation Idahoan. She was born in downtown Boise at St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center, and has lived and worked all over the Gem State.

“I love Idaho. I love the people of Idaho,” she said. “I think there are interesting things happening in Idaho, and I like having a radio station that covers things happening on local and state levels.”

For the last five years, she has taught in the School of Public Service and studied the nexus between cities and the natural environment. And for the two previous years, Moroney has been a supporter of Boise State Public Radio. She even jokes with her husband that “we’ll know we’ve made it when we can be sustaining donors.”

Moroney is passionate about the programming because it’s news she can use. It gives her access to voices she wouldn’t otherwise be able to hear. It puts in the storefront the events, issues and voices that impact her life, and the lives of others.

“Boise State Public Radio does a good job of showcasing the interesting and innovative things happening in Idaho — things around cities and public lands,” she said. “It does a good job of communicating our identity as Idahoans.”Jillian Moroney

From areas of special coverage like guns in America and the Mountain West to education, politics, arts and culture, and the environment, BSPR is for thousands of Idahoans a source of quality news and factual information. Award-winning programs like Idaho Matters and Morning Edition are a staple of the community. Like so many other supporters, she loves its content and  mission, and has a stake in its success.

“Because I use it, I feel like I should throw in for that,” Moroney said. “They showcase so many things that are important to me — it’s a good investment.”
