Abstract:

"National Public Radio's first employee, Jack W. Mitchell, examines the dreams that inspired those who created it, the all-too-human realities that grew out of those dreams, and the criticism public radio has incurred from both sides of the political spectrum. The first producer of NPR's legendary "All Things Considered," Mitchell tells the story of public radio from the point of view of an insider, a participant, and a thoughtful observer. He traces its origins in the progressive movement of the 20th century, and analyzes the people, institutions, ideas, political forces, and economic realities that helped it evolve into what we know as public radio today.

NPR and its local affiliates have earned their reputation for thoughtful commentary and excellent journalism, and their work is especially notable in light of the unique struggles they have faced over the decades."--BOOK JACKET.
