We received some calls and messages on Monday when listeners heard Donald Trump’s full speech to the Detroit Economic Club on our air. Some pointed out that there were some odd moments, such as when our local announcement aired right on top of NPR. Some wondered why we decided to pre-empt Here and Now to carry it. In both cases, at the beginning of the day, we were not aware that NPR intended to preempt the entire noon hour (and beyond) of Here and Now to carry the speech. A communications snafu caused us to miss some of the normally scheduled program cues.

Don Gonyea's April 13th visit to Wilmington, NC was met with great success.

The man who succeeded Carl Kasell as the voice of NPR’s top-of-the-hour morning newscast is coming to Wilmington. 

Paul Brown is still crafting stories.
