After 36 years at NPR, the last 11-1/2 of them as host of Talk of the Nation, Neal Conan hosted his final show last month. NPR will no longer produce and distribute the daily talk show. At the end of the final program, Neal took a few minutes to thank his coworkers and listeners, and to challenge us to keep public radio strong - and relevant - in the years to come. If you missed it, here are his remarks:
We thank you for listening to and supporting Talk of the Nation on WNIJ. You can find out more about changes to WNIJ's midday lineup here.
