Diane Rehm: The Art of the Interview
Having just returned from Athens, Georgia, I wanted to share with you a rare gem. A new building housing the Special Collections at the University of Georgia has just recently opened. In the Special Collections is a section on Peabody Award Winners for excellence in broadcast journalism. Featured in this section is Diane Rehm as an example of interviewing skill and expertise.
As host of “The Diane Rehm Show” on public radio stations nationwide, Diane explores political and human interest topics through artful interviews. Her guests explore issues ranging from historical topics like the anniversary of the War of 1812 to political hot buttons like the Keystone Pipeline to health topics like heart disease.
Rehm won a Peabody Award in 2009.
