WGBH Announces On Campus Radio Hour

June 16, 2017

WGBH News is launching On Campus Radio, hour-long program dedicated to higher-ed news, this Sunday, June 18 at 8 p.m. In the pilot episode, the program will take a closer look at the nature of free speech on campus. The On Campus team will take you to Wellesley College, where conservative professors are trying to burst the liberal bubble. The show will also revisit a 2016 interview with Williams College student Zach Wood, who is trying to push students out of their comfort zones on the liberal arts campus.

Among other guests, the On Campus Radio hour will sit down with Wesleyan President Michael Roth, who is calling for “affirmative action” for conservative thought, and Yale philosophy professor Jason Stanley, who thinks that is a misguided idea. 

Harvard education professor Meira Levinson and WGBH News senior editor Ken Cooper will also be joining the show. Tune in to 89.7 FM to listen along.
