Susan Stamberg On This is NPR

Susan Stamberg On This is NPR: "Always put the listener first" has been NPR's mantra since its inception in 1970. Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, NPR's programming attracts over 27 million listeners, from 897 stations nationwide, each week. To commemorate the 40-year milestone – in addition to quietly changing its name from National Public radio to simply NPR – a new self-reflective book has been released. This is NPR: The First Forty Years chronicles NPR’s storied history, featuring dozens of photos, essays and original reporting by a who’s who of NPR staff and correspondents. Among them: Morning Edition Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg – herself a 38-year veteran of NPR – and the recipient of every major award in broadcasting. She joins us to talk about her nearly four decades with the network.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
