Voices and stories from between the coasts

This interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

NPR veteran and former Here and Now host Jeremy Hobson tackles The Middle. Starting tomorrow, Hobson will host four LIVE call-in talk show specials highlighting the voices and stories of people in middle America. They are voices that Hobson says are often marginalized in media coverage.

Hobson is the show creator and Midwest native himself. The first episode is going to be hosted in his hometown of Urbana, Illinois. He joins Lori Walsh on In the Moment to talk about the Middle, his early days at NPR, and what makes a good interview.

The Middle premieres October 19th at 8 p.m. CST. /7 p.m. MST. The program will air every Wednesday through election day. If you want to make your voice heard, call 1-844-4MIDDLE / 1-844-464-3353.
