Broadcaster Harry Brawley died on March 25, 1992, at age 82. The Charleston native was a polio survivor. He eventually learned to walk but struggled with it his entire life. After earning two degrees from West Virginia University, Brawley became a teacher. At Charleston High School, he had the novel idea of incorporating the radio into the classroom. In 1945, he became the director of public affairs for Charleston’s WCHS radio station and won an award for his “School of the Air,” a pioneering program for high schoolers.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting is proud to announce a new program from America’s Test Kitchen (ATK) founder Christopher Kimball, Milk Street Radio. With ATK ceasing production of its radio show (television will continue) at year-end, the timing of Kimball’s new adventure couldn’t be more perfect.

Fellow Public Radio Lovers,

First of all, thanks for reading this. Starting a conversation with you is one of the most exciting parts of what I’m finding to be a roundly exciting endeavor.

NPR has a new president and CEO.  Jarl Mohn was once a music DJ, but he says he has a passion for  public radio. That's why he chaired Southern California Public Radio after making his career in cable TV as President and CEO of E-Entertainment Television.
