Hello from inside! This is Sarah LaDuke, the Producer of The Roundtable and The Book Show on WAMC - and I contribute interviews to The Roundtable.
Under “normal" circumstances, The Roundtable features The Roundtable Panel, a current events discussion from 9 to 10:50 a.m. featuring WAMC President, CEO, and Political Commentator Alan Chartock, The Roundtable and Book Show host Joe Donahue and a rotating team of panelists. Then we air The Congressional Corner where Alan speaks with members of the U.S. Congress, Senate, or a political scientist or pollster. The 11 to noon hour of the show usually features assorted interviews and segments; frequently spotlighting artists and arts organizations in and beyond our region.
During the pandemic, the last hour of our show is often preempted by vital updates from one executive or another - typically New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. It is very important to hear what he has to say each day and we are glad to be able to bring it to our listeners. Joe's other interviews feature not-for-profits that are helping people cope with these uncertain and confusing times and experts and authors who talk about assorted serious topics related to COVID-19 or other serious issues.
But we’re missing our friends in the arts.
We're starting a new series of arts interviews on the WAMCRadio Instagram account. They will be live and I will be doing them from my home where I have been working for the past four weeks. It’s called “A Face for Radio Video Series.”
