For the next few weeks, I’ll be away on vacation with my family. During my time away, we’re digging into the archives and sharing some of our most popular episodes. This week, we bring you our conversation with public radio personality Bob Edwards.
TCH Encore Presentation – Bob Edwards
You all know that I am a huge fan of Public Radio. Some of my favorite interviews have been with public radio personalities.
Bob Edwards is the host of “The Bob Edwards Show” on Sirius XM Radio and “Bob Edwards Weekend,” distributed to public radio stations by Public Radio International (PRI). Both programs feature in-depth interviews with newsmakers, journalists, entertainers and other compelling figures.
Before joining Sirius XM in 2004, Edwards hosted National Public Radio’s (NPR) “Morning Edition” for 24-and-a-half years, attracting more than 13 million listeners weekly. He joined NPR in 1974 and was co-host of NPR’s evening news magazine, “All Things Considered,” until 1979 when he helped launch “Morning Edition.”
Edwards was born in Louisville, Kentucky and began his radio career there.
He is the author of two books: “Fridays with Red,” which chronicled his radio friendship with legendary sportscaster Red Barber, and “Edward R. Murrow and the Birth of Broadcast Journalism.” His latest book – his memoir – A Voice in the Box (affiliate link), was published in September, 2011.
Bob Edwards has won the duPont-Columbia Award for radio journalism, a George Foster Peabody Award for excellence in broadcasting, and the Edward R. Murrow Award for outstanding contributions to public radio. He serves as national first vice president of AFTRA, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. In November of 2004, Edwards was inducted into the national Radio Hall of Fame.
