Dallas, Texas –
The head of the New York Archdiocese, Cardinal Edward Egan, was active during the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Dallas, putting a New York face on that gathering. His views helped shape the new policy on child sexual abuse by priests. WNYC's Mark Hilan speaks with WNYC reporter Amy Eddings on the role New York's church leaders and churchgoers had at this historic meeting.
Amy Eddings is the local host of “All Things Considered,” which airs from 4 PM until 8 PM weekdays. She started hosting in 2004, after long-time host JoAnn Allen left for the West Coast. Before ATC, Amy was a reporter. Her favorite topics were--and still are--garbage and recycling, which she still reports on whenever she can get out of the studio.
