Call in to speak with the host
On Friday, October 28 WGBH radio host Callie Crossley will interview veteran foreign correspondent Anne Garrels on the Journalism School's blog talk radio channel. It will be the first interview that Ms. Garrels has given since she left her senior correspondent post at NPR last year. Ms. Crossley and Ms. Garrels are two of nine jurors who will be on campus to deliberate on the 2012 duPont-Columbia Award winners.
Ms. Crossley's daytime radio program, self-titled "The Callie Crossley Show," is a Boston staple covering local news, art and culture. An esteemed public speaker, Ms. Crossley contributes commentary and lectures about old and new media, media literacy, and the intersections of race, gender and media. For the past six years Ms. Crossley has been a dedicated member of the duPont jury.
Ms. Garrels is heralded as the trustworthy voice that brought listeners stories from the 2003 Iraq invasion. She arrived in Iraq when TV and print outlets abounded, and was one of the few who remained. Her grit and NPR's commitment brought listeners the still and stark realities of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, coverage that received the duPont-Columbia Award in 2003. The duPont-Columbia Awards welcomes Ms. Garrels for her first duPont jury experience.
Questions for Ms. Garrels will be received during the interview and via the duPont-Awards Facebook Fan page.
It's good to talk.
