The event was held at the Quaker Station at 12:00 PM.
Eric Nuzum, Vice President for Programming at National Public Radio, spoke today at The Akron Roundtable. In his presentation – “Dare to Listen” – Nuzum gave the audience a bit of his background from his days attending Kent State University and working at WKSU before heading to Washington D.C. to work for NPR. He also spoke about the importance and resilience of radio at a time of great changes in media.
As public and political discourse has often become polarizing, extreme, and perhaps even uncivil, Eric Nuzum stressed the need for each of us listen to each other and especially to listen to those who may have a different perspective than our own.
Thank you Eric and thank you Akron Roundtable for offering us such an energizing and uplifting talk!
The presentation will be broadcast tonight at 7:00 PM on 89.7 WKSU.
