A National Public Radio program to be aired this morning will mark the second time in a year that Columbus has been featured on a national network.
The two-hour “Weekend Edition” program today will include a segment about Columbus art and architecture.
Local listeners can tune in from 8 to 10 a.m. on WFIU-FM (100.7).
Journalist Susan Stamberg and executive producer Peter Breslow conducted several interviews in Columbus last month, focusing not only on the city’s celebrated architectural program but also its emphasis on the arts.
Interviews that will be aired today, according to the NPR, include:
Will Miller, son of J. Irwin and Xenia Miller and former chairman of the Irwin Sweeney Miller Foundation. He now lives in New York City, where he is president of the Wallace Foundation.
Harry McCawley, Bartholomew County historian and associate editor of The Republic.
Wilma Hare, an employee at Zaharakos Ice Cream Parlor and Museum.
Bob Bishop, Columbus Area Visitors Center tour guide.
The NPR segment follows on the heels of the visit to Columbus last year of the popular weekend CBS program “Sunday Morning” with Charles Osgood. Several segments about Columbus were sprinkled through that hourlong program and resulted in a significant increase in visitors to the city, according to officials with the Columbus Area Visitors Center.
