Wisconsin On The Air - Book


Wisconsin On The Air is a history of 100 years of public broadcasting in the state that invented it in 1917. Author Jack Mitchell, who developed National Public Radio's All Things Considered before becoming the head of Wisconsin Public Radio, centers this public broadcasting history around the implementation of the Wisconsin Idea philosophy that drove its development and still sets its course. Along the way, Mitchell introduces readers to the personalities and philosophies, funding challenges and legislation, and original programming and pioneering technology that gave us public broadcasting.
