An Evening with NPR at the Woody Creek Community Center
An evening with NPR at the Woody Creek Community Center
Aspen Public Radio is privileged to host an evening of conversation with three of NPR’s top personalities: NPR President and CEO Gary Knell ; Morning Edition Host Steve Inskeep; and Tell Me More Host Michel Martin. The event will provide attendees an opportunity to meet and interact with all three of our guests in the relaxed setting of the Woody Creek Community Center. Mr. Knell, Mr. Inskeep, and Ms. Martin will all speak about their work at NPR, their shows, and recent journalistic assignments.
Join us on Monday, July 1 at 6pm for this special occasion, which will include wine and hors d’oeuvres, and will honor APR’s mission to bringing the best of NPR’s thinkers, journalists, and hosts to the Roaring Fork Valley.
Gary Knell, President and CEO of National Public Radio (NPR), has aimed to implement new technologies and innovation to grow the national audiences of all public media. Mr. Knell joined NPR in 2011, and since he has expanded the reach of NPR, leading partnerships with more than 900 public radio stations. From 2000 to 2011, Mr. Knell was the CEO of Sesame Workshop, where he focused on the worldwide extension of Sesame Street programming .
Steve Inskeep is co-host of Morning Edition, the most widely heard radio news program in the United States. Although he has covered national and international stories and has interviewed presidents, warlords, authors, and musicians, Mr. Inskeep has a passion for the stories of the less famous – like an American soldier who lost both feet in Afghanistan; the Bordelons, who remained in their home even when it flooded during Hurricane Katrina; or a New Hampshire women at a dining-room table, pondering how to vote.
Michel Martin has been a journalist for more than 25 years – first in print with major newspapers and then in television. Tell Me More marks her debut as a full-time radio show host. Before joining NPR, Ms. Martin served as a correspondent for ABC News, reporting on subjects ranging from Congressional budget battles and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to the U.S. embassy bombings in Africa. She produced award-winning coverage of September 11, and has won an Emmy for her coverage of the international campaign to ban the use of landmines. Ms. Martin has also covered politics for the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.
