‘Campbell Conversations’ radio program wins two major awards
“The Campbell Conversations,” a public affairs interview radio program hosted by Maxwell School Political Science Professor Grant Reeher, has won two major awards: a first place from the New York State Associated Press Broadcasters Association in the Best Interview category and a second place from the Syracuse Press Club in the Special Program category. The Syracuse Press Club recognition was for the 2014 “Campbell Conversations” debate between John Katko and Dan Maffei for the 24th congressional district.
For more than four years, Campbell Conversations has aired on WRVO radio. The half-hour show features extended, in-depth interviews in which Reeher goes beyond and behind the current news cycle to explore more lasting questions about public affairs. Guests include notable figures from Central New York—writers, politicians, activists, public officials and business leaders—whose work affects the public life of the community, as well as nationally prominent figures visiting the region.
