This January, NPR named Vivian Schiller as its new President and CEO, after its board forced out former CEO Ken Stern. As a former head of the website for The New York Times and leading the Discovery Times cable channel, her new leadership at NPR is actually her first job in radio. But in a time when no one knows the future of the media, many in the company are encouraged by the choice of someone with multi-media experience. She joins us to talk about media, journalism and the future of NPR- as she sees it.

Tuesday October 27, 2009 | Prison Recidivism

October 26, 2009 at 10:49 am | Posted in Coming Up | 4 Comments

North Carolina has the nation’s second fastest growing prison population. Prison construction puts a stress on state budgets and incarcerating prisoners is an expensive endeavor. Enter Scott Silverman, who for almost two decades has successfully helped to keep former convicts from a cycle of prison terms. His San Diego based organization Second Chance has helped reform thousands of California’s prisoners. He’s in Charlotte for a series of consultations and he sits down with us to talk about how to reduce North Carolina’s prison problem.
