Lori Walsh

In the Moment Host

South Dakota Public Broadcasting is pleased to announce Lori Walsh is the new host for Dakota Midday, SDPB Radio’s live news and issues program which broadcasts weekdays from Noon-1pm (11am-Noon MT).

Walsh most recently worked as a freelance journalist for the Sioux Falls Argus Leader and as a Humanities Scholar for the South Dakota Humanities Council, leading veteran writing groups. A graduate of Sioux Falls Lincoln High School and Augustana University’s journalism program, Walsh is a writer, blogger, photographer, poet, and member of the National Book Critics Circle and Society for Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. Walsh also served in the United States Marine Corps for six years, working as a cryptologic Korean linguist.

“It’s a huge responsibility to take the helm of Dakota Midday. It’s so well-established, successful, trusted,” says Walsh. “It’s a great comfort to come into something and know I don’t have to re-invent anything. On the other hand, I can look to the future and say, ‘where is this going next?’ It’s exciting to say it can continue to get better, to grow. The conversation can continue. I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I’m a listener and now I’m a host.”

If you're weary of bad news and political dramas, you might want to consider just how good we have it in the 21st Century. Steven Pinker's new book is called "Enlightenment Now," and it paints a slightly rosier picture of life as we know it than you might see, for example, on the evening news.

But this isn't a Pollyana utopian fantasy. It's a data-driven look at how humans and human-led institutions are making progress on the most complex problems facing humanity . . . and the areas where we are falling short.
