Dr. Margaret Smith Talks GMO's

Dr. Margaret Smith

Dr. Margaret Smith of Cornell university joins WAMC's Ray Graf for a discussion on the basics of GMO's and Genetic Engineering.  

Dr. Smith joined the faculty at Cornell University in 1987 in the College of Agriculture and Life Science's Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, focusing on corn breeding.  She will present a talk entitled "GMO's Just the Facts" tonight at the Cornell Cooperative of Rensselaer County on the evening of Wednesday, May 27. 

In a radio career that has spanned nearly 35 years, Ray Graf has done it all. At one time or another he worked as an overnight board operator, a commercial copywriter, a reporter and a voiceover announcer. For several years - a lifetime ago - he was a morning drive disc jockey. Graf has been a member of the WAMC News team for 16 years. These days, he finds himself as The Roundtable's news anchor, panelist- and occasional guest host for Joe Donahue. "Radio news is not always easy," said Graf of his most recent radio vocation, "but it's not nearly as difficult as spinning a Michael Bolton record at 5:45 in the morning and pretending you're happy about it."
