Louisville native Bob Edwards kicks off his book tour for his new book, A Voice in the Box: My Life in Radio in Louisville!

 

For over thirty years, Bob Edwards has delivered the news with his trademark sincerity, intelligence, and wit. From his years on National Public Radio (NPR) to his more recent tenure on Sirius XM Radio, Edwards’ mix of long-form interviews and news documentaries have resonated with the American people, winning him several prestigious journalism awards. In A Voice in the Box: My Life in Radio, Edwards tells the story of his career in radio broadcasting. He started out pounding the pavement during college, knocking on station doors. From there, he served in the U.S. Army, working for American Forces Korea Network. After his military service ended, he worked for radio stations in the Washington D.C. area before moving to NPR in 1974. In 2004, he became the first radio personality with a national audience to move to satellite radio. His book offers a unique view of the evolution of American news and public broadcast journalism. Bob Edwards is the host of The Bob Edwards Show on Sirius XM Radio and “Bob Edwards Weekend” which is distributed nationally to public radio stations by Public Radio International (PRI). He was born in Louisville, where he got his start in radio before serving as a U.S. Army broadcaster. Prior to joining Sirius XM, Edwards hosted National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition.” He is a graduate of the University of Louisville and received a master’s degree from American University in Washington. Reservations are suggested.
