NPR has grown into one of the primary news sources in America and one of the most influential broadcast outlets in the world.
The rise of National Public Radio in the American consciousness has happened largely under the watch of Kevin Klose, president of NPR. Klose is a former editor and national and foreign correspondent with The Washington Post, one of many at the network to make the jump from print to radio. He's also been deeply involved in developing radio in Eastern Europe.
Today, we're going to talk to Kevin Klose about his career covering the fall of the "Iron Curtain" and also about NPR and it's role in American life. And, we'll talk about the future of a service that has "radio" in it's name, as broadcasters find ways to branch out into new types of media.
