Radio Roundtable: Funding Pre-K Education In Memphis

Bard Cole

This week on the Behind the Headlines Radio Roundtable, a debate about the proposed Memphis city sales tax, and how it might be used to fund pre-K education.

Shea Flinn, Memphis City Councilman; Rev. Kenneth Whalum, Pastor at the New Olivet Baptist Church; and Hank Herrod, with the Urban Child Institute in Memphis, join host Eric Barnes, publisher of the Memphis Daily News, for the discussion.

For the complete conversation, check the Behind the Headlines video page, or tune-in Fridays 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.
