About this Event

OMAHA, Neb. — KIOS 91.5 FM in partnership with Joslyn Art Museum is pleased to present An Evening with Susan Stamberg.

Wednesday; September 25 2019, 7:00 p.m.

Venue: Joslyn Art Museum, Witherspoon Concert Hall

Nationally renowned broadcast journalist Susan Stamberg is a special correspondent for NPR. The first woman to anchor a national nightly news program, she has won every major award in broadcasting, and has been inducted into both the Broadcasting Hall of Fame and the Radio Hall of Fame. In 2020 Ms. Stamberg will receive a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Radio category. Stamberg has been on staff with NPR since the network began in 1971.

KIOS Station Manager Ken Dudzik says, “As one of NPR’s original founding member stations, we are delighted that Susan Stamberg has agreed to join us as part of our 50th Anniversary festivities. We know the evening will be a celebration of the rich history of public broadcasting viewed from the unique perspective of one of NPR’s “founding mothers.”

About Susan Stamberg:

One of the most popular broadcasters in public radio, Stamberg is well known for her conversational style, intelligence, and knack for finding an interesting story. Her interviewing has been called "fresh," "friendly, down-to-earth," and (by novelist E.L. Doctorow) "the closest thing to an enlightened humanist on the radio." Her thousands of interviews include conversations with Laura Bush, Billy Crystal, Rosa Parks, Dave Brubeck, and Luciano Pavarotti.

Prior to joining NPR, she served as producer, program director, and general manager of NPR Member Station WAMU-FM/Washington, DC. Stamberg is the author of two books, and co-editor of a third. Talk: NPR's Susan Stamberg Considers All Things, chronicles her two decades with NPR. Her first book, Every Night at Five: Susan Stamberg's All Things Considered Book, was published in 1982.
