On March 24, Michigan Radio is offering listeners a chance to participate in an intimate conversation with Jenn White, the host of NPR’s 1A program. Hosted by the station’s Morning Edition host Doug Tribou, they’ll discuss what it’s like hosting a daily nationwide show that focuses on the most important issues of the day, as well as White’s long career in public media and podcasting. Questions from the audience will be welcome.
Jenn White is a seasoned journalist and podcast host. She has worked in public radio since 1999. Prior to becoming host of NPR’s 1A, she worked at WBEZ in Chicago where she was host of the station’s local two-hour midday show, Reset with Jenn White.
She is also a familiar voice on several well known WBEZ podcasts, including Making Oprah, Making Obama and 16 Shots, which chronicled the fatal police shooting of Laquan McDonald and the trial of Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke. Before WBEZ, White was the local host of All Things Considered at Michigan Radio.
