Wednesday October 28,2009 | NPR President Vivian Schiller

October 26, 2009 at 12:55 pm | Posted in Coming Up | 3 Comments

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.

  2. Congratulations and wish you all the success in your new assignmnet

  3. I wish you had asked the “Bush basher” caller to cite just one single example of “Bush bashing” on NPR. The stammering would’ve been priceless! The only bias I’ve ever heard in NPR news broadcasts was from political operatives (e.g. Karl Rove’s famous snotty quip to Robert Siegel about “the math”) being interviewed. I don’t think there’s a rule about bias in non-news programs. I understand why you didn’t push this caller, but I think journalists (and talk show hosts) have become too respectful of opinions that are based on propaganda and outright lies. I want to see journalists, hosts, and reporters push for answers rather than tolerate distraction techniques.
