Questions for Mayor Dixon

On April 21st, we’re going to City Hall to interview Sheila Dixon, Mayor of Baltimore.  So, send us questions that you want the Mayor to answer.  You have issues in your neighborhood, bring them up.  Questions about any policy issues, or crime or poverty?  You can send us political questions about Annapolis and the coming Presidential election.  They are all fair game.  We may not be able to take your calls, but we can take your questions.  We’ll use them to help plan our interview, which will of course be available right here as a CEM podcast.  Thanks!!

02/19/08 First Day on the Job

In case you didn’t catch the news in Baltimore Business Journal or dcrtv today, thought I’d write a quick note to let everyone here know that yesterday was my last day at WYPR, and today is my first day working as a producer at the Center for Emerging Media!  I’m thrilled to be here, and looking forward to continuing working with Marc and Jessica.  The best way to contact me directly, for the time being, is justinlevy2@gmail.com.  If anyone knows who justinlevy1 is, I’d like to get in touch with him.
It’s been great to see the discussion that has exploded on the blog here the past few weeks.  Hope this will continue to grow as a place for increasingly broader discussion.
I’ve been thinking about all of these things that we would have been discussing on the air the past few weeks.  What’s been catching people’s interest lately, outside of the WYPR fiasco?  Fidel Castro plans to step down, Kosovo declares independence, the largest beef recall ever, the worst suicide bombing in Afghanistan since 2001, Obama, elections in Pakistan…

thoughts from Sarbanes after today’s show

Michael Sarbanes was kind enough to sit down in the next studio over with WYPR senior news producer, Mary Rose Madden, right after the Marc Steiner Show today.  Click here for the audio of their conversation, which includes additional ideas from him on the land bank plan, including any loose ends that he felt were left at the end of the show.
