Anna Kronenberger

Host Anna Kronenberger and her guests for a journey through the ups, the downs, and the in-betweens of raising a family. Email your questions to parenttrip@wvik.org.

We'd like to thank Anna Kronenberger for the excellent work she put into The Parent Trip for the 20 months of its production. We hope you found the important information she made available to be valuable. At the end of 2012, however, The Parent Trip ended its run on WVIK. This archive of programs will remain here. And again, we thank Anna for her hard work and dedication.

In 2013, listen for Latino USA on Wednesdays at 7 pm, and Inside Europe on Saturdays at Noon.
