  • Years at WGBH: 1970-1972 (when I left to accept a position with National Public Radio in Washington)
  • Jobs at GBH: Radio reporter for WGBH-FM and host of “The Ford Hall Forum”

WGBH offered me my first job after graduating from the Boston University School of Communication. I covered state and local government for FM news and hosted “The Ford Hall Forum” in its 1971 season. I worked with Bob Carey, Judy Stoia, Paula Apsell, Rebecca Eaton, and other remarkable professionals (Bill Bucyck, Bill Cavness, Nat Johnson et al.)

After WGBH, I worked for NPR, the BBC in London, Associated Press Radio, The Christian Science Monitor’s Radio and TV outlets, CNN in New York and Atlanta, and The Weather Channel. I also worked for local public radio/TV stations in Tucson, Columbus (Ohio), and New York.

I live now in South Georgia (Thomasville) with my wife, not far from our daughter in Tallahassee, Florida.

    Villa and Joe Vogelsang thought of you this evening. We remain in your former New Hampshire home, some 18 years now. We have retired and expect to remain here. We hope you Susan and Lisa are well.
