Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Welcome to WMNF Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up weâ€™ll hear from the executive editor of Rolling Stone Magazine about the current cover story on President Obamaâ€™s first six months in office. But first some listener comments about last Thursdayâ€™s program. On that program we heard from a Republican activist who was organizing the protest outside of the town hall meeting on health care last Thursday in Ybor City. We also heard from a former health insurance industry executive who has become a whistleblower who is now revealing the unethical practices of the health insurance industry.
The current cover story in Rolling Stone magazine features an interview with three leading political observers: David Gergen, a senior political analyst for CNN and a former advisor to four presidents; Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times columnist Paul Krugman; and Academy Award winning film director Michael Moore. Conducting the interview was Eric Bates, the Executive Editor of Rolling Stone. Eric has a long resume, but early in his work history Eric worked here at WMNF in the news department.
