Jay Allison, one of the top independent radio journalists and producers on the airwaves, will speak at Middlebury this Wednesday March, 16th at 4:30pm in BiHall Room 220.

Allison has produced shows for This American Life, and his stories have aired on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered and Morning Edition. Allison also produces the Moth Radio Hour, which nationally broadcasts  stories told at the official Moth in NYC (and now other major cities) that Middlebury’s popular Thursday night event is based on.

Allison is a very big deal in the radio journalism world, and his lecture should not be missed by anyone who listens to public radio or is interested in journalism.

The lecture is part of the Meet the Press Lecture Series organized by Scholar in Residence Sue Halpern, who recently had an article published in the New York Times Magazine.
