State of the Re:Union is back on WNIJ

Oct 31, 2012

WNIJ brings you a new season of State of the Re:Union.  Our specials air on five consecutive Sundays at 6pm, beginning this weekend. With so much talk about "community," sometimes we lose perspective on the real stories of the people working to make homes, lives, and neighborhoods across the country. On State of the Re:Union, Public Radio Talent Quest winner Al Letson travels the country to find those stories -- and tells them with grace, perspective, and deep curiosity.

Northern Public Radio’s interim Director and General Manager is now permanent.  Staci Hoste succeeds Tim Emmons, who died last February.  She’ll continue to lead WNIJ, Classical WNIU and NIRIS, a reading service for the visually impaired.  Hoste joined the organization in 2008 as its Development Director, or chief fundraiser.  She says raising money will remain a priority for her.
