And while we’re on the subject of wise things, let’s not forget NPR’s other programming: the arts and entertainment coverage that plays its own distinctive role trying to keep our democracy spirited, diverse and imaginative. Think Garrison Keillor. Krista Tippett. Ira Glass. Think Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, Car Talk (yes, many of us are would-be grease monkeys). On the Media (the single best analysis and critique of media anywhere). And — well, consult your local listings.
—Bill Moyers and Michael Winship, from “NPR: The Saga Continues” in The Huffington Post
It’s quite an honor to be mentioned by such a fine journalist and one of public media’s great ambassadors, let alone for Krista to be listed in the company of such esteemed company in public radio.
