Gladstone from NPR's 'On The Media' coming to Concord Dec. 10

I, unfortunately, won't be able to attend this event. But it is one of the shows I used to love listening to on WBUR:

Brooke Gladstone, co-host and managing editor of National Public Radio's "On The Media" program will discuss the media's influence on the outcome of the New Hampshire primary on Monday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m. at the New Hampshire Historical Historical Society's Library in Concord. NHPR's Executive Editor, Jon Greenberg, will interview Gladstone about her experience observing the Presidential Primaries through the lens of the media. This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited.
"On the Media offers critique and analysis of the media and the role it plays in society. This analysis is especially relevant in New Hampshire during the primaries, and we feel it is important that this insight is shared with the people of the Granite State. It is not often that the media shines a light on itself, and this will be an opportunity to learn how media watchers like Brooke dissect the primaries and their role in them," said NHPR President and CEO Betsy Gardella.
For one hour a week, "On the Media" lifts the veil from the process of making media, especially news media, because it's through that lens that we literally see the world and the world sees us.
As NPR's first media correspondent, Gladstone has examined the coverage of race, science, and politics, and reported on media mergers, advertising trends, and journalism's evolving ethics. During her time at NPR she has edited several award-winning reports and was the recipient of a Peabody Award, an Overseas Press Club Award, and an Ohio State Award, among other honors. On The Media has also been recognized for excellence including a 2001 Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Feature Reporting.
"On The Media" is heard on NHPR Saturdays at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.
