WGBH EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION noncommercial News-Talk WGBH-F/BOSTON is launching a new podcast, "SECURITY MOM," hosted by international and homeland security expert, former MASSACHUSETTS gubernatorial candidate, and former BOSTON GLOBE columnist JULIETTE KAYYEM, a regular guest on WGBH's "BOSTON PUBLIC RADIO" show who is joining the station and sister PBS affiliates WGBH-TV and WGBX-TV as a contributor. The new podcast launches in mid-APRIL.
In addition, the station and THE GROUNDTRUTH PROJECT are co-producing a new monthly series of international news reports anchored and produced by ELIZABETH ROSS and featuring stories reported by GROUNDTRUTH, starting in late APRIL; the NEW ENGLAND CENTER FOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING will complete its move into the WGBH newsroom as of MAY 1st, expanding the organization's partnership with WGBH that started in 2013; and award-winning veteran reporter ISAIAH THOMPSON is joining NECIR and WGBH on an exclusive basis on APRIL 6th.
GM PHIL REDO said, “At a time when many local newsrooms are contracting or closing, WGBH NEWS continues to grow. We are excited to add new dimensions to WGBH News’ on-air and online reporting with expert individuals who will help us more fully explore the local issues that matter to BOSTON and make connections to topics that are closer to home than we realize.”
