Woman of Public Radio

Nora FlahertyWFUV's own Nora Flaherty got a shout out this week from Duke Law Professor James Boyle in his blog, The Public Domain:

The first thing you have to understand is that they are in your ear. I mean, in your ear. You know that trademark female public radio voice? Terry Gross, Barbara Bogaev you’ve probably heard. But what about Nora Young of CBC’s Spark, Jessica Jones or Nora Flaherty who interviewed me today for the Fordham NPR affiliate. Yeah, that voice.

As WFUV's University Producer, Nora acts as host, field reporter and producer of Fordham Conversations, heard Saturday mornings at 7 a.m. Nora's aim is to bring the activities of Fordham University students, faculty, administrators and alumni to the attention of the listening community.

WFUV (90.7 FM, is a non-commercial, listener-supported public radio station, licensed to Fordham University for nearly 60 years. The station, staffed by 27 broadcast professionals and 70 students, serves nearly 300,000 listeners weekly in the New York area and thousands more worldwide on the Web.
