Radio Roundtable: Searching For A New Superintendent

Unified School Board

This week on the Behind the Headlines Radio Roundtable, Unified School Board members Dr. Kenneth T. Whalum, Jr., and and Kevin Woods, join host Eric Barnes, publisher of the Memphis Daily News, and reporter Bill Dries to discuss the challenges that they face in the coming year.

The discussion focuses on choosing a new Superintendent - perhaps current Shelby County School Superintendent John Aitken - to run the combined school systems.

For a review of the top news stories of the week, you can tune-in to Behind the Headlines Friday evenings at 7 on WKNO-TV 10

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.
