About the Event

For  more than 37 years at WABE, NPR's Atlanta radio station, Lois Reitzes  programmed and hosted classical music.  since 2015, when the format  switched to News/Talk, she hosted a daily arts and culture show.   Research suggests at an emotional level, there is something deeper about  hearing than seeing and something about hearing other people that  fosters human relationships even more than seeing them.  This class will  explore that relationship and stories from Reitze's tenure at WABE.

Location:  CLE Lecture Hall

Presenter:   Lois Reitzes is the executive producer and host of "city lights," on  WABE-FM 90.1, the national public radio affiliate in Atlanta.  She began  working at the station in 1979 as a music programmer and announcer and  became program director in 1992.  Before coming to Atlanta, she worked  at WFIU, in Bloomington, the National Public Radio affiliate licensed to  Indiana University, where she pursued graduate study in Musicology.   Ms. Reitzes holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from Chicago Musical  College of Roosevelt University where she was a piano student of Felix  Ganz.
