Kai Ryssdal, the Host and Senior Editor of Marketplace — the national business show airing weekdays at 6 p.m. on WWNO — flew in for just one day for a special event at Le Petit Théâtre on May 29.
After a quick meet-and-greet with some of the station’s major donors, Kai sat down with WWNO News Director Eve Troeh for an interview in front of a packed house, and then answered questions from the audience.
NPR recently shared the news that the network will end production of Tell Me More on August 1, 2014. This was a decision that NPR made for strategic as well as budgetary reasons. WWNO was not involved with this decision.
NPR believes the issues and perspectives that Michel Martin and the Tell Me More show team have brought to public radio should be infused into every aspect of NPR's journalism.
