This weekend, I’ll be co-hosting the news radio magazine, “For Your Ears Only,” which will air locally this Sunday morning on AM820 WNYC and in nearly 200 other countries nationwide and around the globe! This show, formerly ‘Newsweek On-Air,’ can also be heard as a downloadable podcast.
For this episode, we speak with Jane Eisner, editor of The Forward, to discuss recent implications of the Israeli-Palestinian prisoner swap and how the Middle East plans to move forward after the death of Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.
We’ll also connect with a former CIA-insider, Professor Paul Pillar; award-winning documentarian/author Barbra Gordon — “I’m Dancing As Fast As I Can (1982),” TV vet and co-founder of Premier Digital Publishing, Daniel Tibbets; and singer/songwriter, Amanda McBroom — who shares an interesting story about how she came to write the song, “The Rose,” a track made famous by Bette Midler, who performed it in the 1979 movie.
A special shout-out to veteran journalist, David Alpern, who serves as host of the show and has worked on the program for nearly 30 years! Thank you so much for the opportunity to join your team of co-hosts and I’m thrilled to be a part of the broadcast!
