What Else Do You Do? Aside from current affairs, I take quite an interest in public transport.

What's Your Favorite Thing About Radio? One of the great things about radio is that it, more than any other medium, is truly a blank slate upon which you craft many different kinds of programming.

What Else Do You Do?I like live music and am a long-suffering but always hopeful Mets fan.

What's Your Favorite Thing About Radio? I love radio because it feels personal and is a great way to get information or be entertained while you're cooking, jogging or whatever. I recommend Julie Klausner's "How Was Your Week" and Scott Aukerman's "Comedy Bang Bang" podcasts for a funny diversion from the news.

What Else Do You Do? Avid lover of dogs, although I've never owned one. Mets, Jets, Angels and Lakers fan. Excited about starting college in the fall.

What's Your Favorite Thing About Radio?I love that people have a forum to listen, talk and learn from public entertainment without the entertainment being an act. It is great to be able to interact with the people you listen to, formally and informally, in a comfortable position or just listen to people around the city in an honest way.

What Else Do You Do? When I'm not in the control room of the Brian Lehrer Show, I like to choreograph, read everything British, play with my cats, and assistant teach Hip Hop dance.

What's Your Favorite Thing About Radio? I love radio because it makes the news conversational. When reading print journalism it’s easy to let the current events wash over you, but when the news is spoken and discussed it becomes active for the provider and the listener.

What Else Do You Do? I'm also an intern/reporter at WSHU Public Radio in Connecticut, where I write and voice news stories for broadcast and I'm a connoisseur of kimchi.

What's Your Favorite Thing About Radio?For me, listening to the radio has always been the easiest way to imbibe information. I've always been impressed by how words and conversations alone can reach and influence people over the air waves.
