From the airport hotel in SF, two phone interviews today, on the "going to hell" article:
- With Marty Moss-Coane of "Radio Times" on WHYY in Philadelphia, this discussion, with MP3 file here.
- With Doug Fabrizio of RadioWest on KUER in Salt Lake City, this discussion, with embedded audio file.
A point I think I made in passing on both shows: how different the modern American news ecology would be without NPR.
We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
