Just about the only good thing to result from that February snowstorm that postponed the Selected Shorts taping at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall is that it gives us a chance to catch up with Jim True-Frost here in April. Jim True-Frost will be among the actors at Sunday’s rescheduled showat 3 p.m. in Troy. WAMC is cosponsoring the show.

A veteran of stage and screen, True-Frost has appeared on Hostages, American Odyssey, Boardwalk Empire, Treme, The Hudsucker Proxy, and Singles, to name a few.  A member of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, he has also appeared on Broadway in productions like August: Osage County, The Rivals, and the Grapes of Wrath.

True-Frost is perhaps best known for his five years as police officer-turned-math teacher Roland Pryzbylewski on HBO’s The Wire.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
