CoastLine: Frank Stasio On Why Quitting Has Propelled His Career

Apr 24, 2019

Frank Stasio has hosted The State of Things, WUNC’s public affairs program, since 2006.   

But his start in public radio came much earlier – in Ames, Iowa at WOI.  His next stop:  National Public Radio in Washington, D.C., where he eventually became a newscaster on All Things Considered. 

On this edition, we learn more about his time in Washington, his launch of an alternative school, and what it’s like to be a national guest anchor on Talk of The Nation.  Also, thirteen years in – what still gets him excited with State of Things?
