KQED’s Forum seeks local characters for radio show

on January 27, 2011

KQED radio producers need guests, and they want your suggestions.

They’re looking for “leaders, unsung heroes, world-class innovators, and other notable characters” to be featured in a new segment called “First Person” on the weekday radio program Forum on 88.5 FM.

“We wanted to carve out a place for locals to come in and tell their story, whether or not there is a ‘hook’ for it,” said Forum Senior Editor Dan Zoll in a statement. “Guests will include everyone from Nobel Prize-winning scientist Elizabeth Blackburn to the local corner store owner or cable-car driver or neighborhood activist.”

If you have a Bay Area-based friend, relative, or colleague you would like to recommend, send an email to forum@kqed.org.
