The Founding Mothers of NPR


NPR turns 50 this year and there were major voices that shaped the network. Lisa Napoli has written about the women who became some of the major figures in her new book, "Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR." Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush talked with her about them and their legacy.

The full interview with Napoli can be heard this Friday on Delmarva Today at 9 a.m. on WSDL 90.7 FM. The author will make an appearance by Zoom for Browseabout Books on Monday Afternoon June 7th.

Don Rush is the News Director at Delmarva Public Media. An award-winning journalist, Don reports major local issues of the day, from sea level rise, to urban development, to the changing demographics of Delmarva.
