Fresh Air

From DogstarRadio

Fresh Air is a radio show broadcast on National Public Radio stations across the United States each week. As of 2004, the show is syndicated to 445 stations and claims 4.4 million listeners.

The show began in 1975 at NPR affiliate WHYY-FM in Philadelphia with Terry Gross as presenter and producer; thirty years later she remains its chief presenter. The main segment of the show is characterized by an interview, usually of persons in the arts and entertainment field, although other newsmakers, cultural figures, and journalists have also been featured. Shorter segments follow the main segment and carry reviews of various cultural and entertainment diversions on a rotating basis. These include such venues as movies, books, stage plays, television programs, as well as recordings of popular music, jazz, and classical music. The program also features commentary from a range of regular contributors.

The show won the 1994 Peabody Award; according to its website, the show was praised for "probing questions, revelatory interviews, and unusual insights."
