This week on Taking On, we sit down with Princeton Professor Alan Blinder to discuss the current economic turmoil, the reform of the financial system, and the role of the Federal Reserve. Part 1 airs on Sunday, November 15. Part 2 will air on Sunday, November 29. To listen to the interview in its entirety, please return to the WPRB News website after Part 2 has aired.
My term as news director here at WPRB is winding down but I thought I would take a moment to go over some of the changes that we’re planning for our coverage in the coming months.
First, the very qualified Nikki Leon, who many of you will recognize as this year’s host and voice of Discourse will be taking over day-to-day operations. Her focus will be on bolstering our culture and arts content and she has some very good ideas for the general future of the department.
Second, the News department will be boosting its emphasis on online and multimedia news. My blog, Off The Air (which was sorely neglected for months on end) has moved off-site and will now focus on enterprise and accountability reporting on and off campus. It will have several contributors and the content will be available here most of the time too.
Overall, we always enjoy hearing from listeners and readers– if you have any suggestions on how we can better serve you in this new year, let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
