Behind the Headlines: Friday evenings at 6:30 on WKNO: TV's Channel 10

This week on the Behind the Headlines Radio Roundtable: the result of the run-off election for City Council between Lee Harris and Kimba Ford, missing ammunition at the Memphis Police Department, and the rejection of the controversial "Personhood" amendment to Mississippi's constitution.  

 

Host Eric Barnes, publisher of the Memphis Daily News, and panel discuss this week's most important news stories.  This week's panel includes Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News, Lauren Lee of Fox 13 News, Amos Maki of the Commercial Appeal, and Jackson Baker of the Memphis Flyer.  

My mother introduced me to WKNO-FM and public radio long before I can remember. I suppose the first thing I really recall about WKNO-FM is that every afternoon, when my mother picked me up from school, the radio was tuned-in to The World, then All Things Considered, probably beginning around age 8. The way these reporters and hosts took you from the comfort of your mom's van to wherever in the world they were reporting from absolutely fascinated me. From then on, I was officially hooked.
