NPR announced Friday morning that it will no longer produce the Monday-to-Thursday call-in show Talk of the Nation.
It will be replaced by Here and Now, a show produced in partnership with member station WBUR in Boston. Reported stories will be part of the show's format.
Neal Conan, Talk of the Nation's host, will depart after more than three decades with the network. His past positions include stints as bureau chief in New York and London, and as NPR's foreign editor, managing editor, and news director.
On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, WOUB Director and General Manager Tom Hodson talks with Baseball Hall of Fame writer Paul Hagen.
Hagen is to be honored at the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Weekend July 27–28 in Cooperstown, N.Y., for his tireless dedication to sports journalism.
In December 2012, Hagen also won the J.G. Taylor Spink Award by the Baseball Writer’s Association of America.
Hagen’s 40-plus year career in sports writing has landed him in Philadelphia, Pa., where he currently writes for MLB.com.
