Next Stop, Mississippi

Next Stop, Mississippi is your on-air source for information about upcoming events and attractions across the state.  Get to know the real Mississippi!

Each week MPB and the MDA Division of Tourism will highlight well-known and unknown places in Mississippi with the best food, parks, music and arts. We’ll not only tell you what’s going on in your neck of the woods but also share the history and people behind the markets, sporting events, concerts, fairs and festivals all over Mississippi.  Hear the personal stories and traditions behind that favorite event you attend each year.

 Our next stop could be Senatobia, Morton or Monticello.  You never know where we’ll stop, but the adventure always starts with a turn of the dial to Next Stop, Mississippi, airing Friday mornings on MPB Think Radio.
