Reporting from the Lowcountry and South Carolina
A NEWS MEET & GREET
Have you ever wondered about the people behind the news voices you hear on South Carolina Public Radio? What does it mean when you hear “South Carolina Public Radio’s Alexandra Olgin reports…” on an NPR broadcast? Are you curious about what it takes to deliver high-quality radio journalism in 2017?
ETV Endowment members are cordially invited to join the Endowment and South Carolina Public Radio for a special conversation and reception with Alexandra Olgin and Russ McKinney. Alexandra is based in Charleston and covers the Lowcountry. Dozens of her South Carolina reports have been broadcast nationally on NPR. Russ, host of State House Week and a part-time Lowcountry resident, is a news veteran with more than 30 years in radio journalism and public affairs.
Linda O’Bryon, SCETV’s President & CEO, will moderate the discussion ranging from how Alexandra and Russ seek out local stories and make connections to the broader state and national narrative to the role of technology and storytelling in their work. There will also be time for you to ask questions.
Thank you to our event hosts and ETV Endowment members, Doris and George Reinhart.
