MCGLAUGHLIN, whose address will be called "Talent Doesn't Push Buttons," is the host of AMERICAN PUBLIC MEDIA's ST. PAUL SUNDAY and the syndicated CENTER STAGE FROM WOLF TRAP and CONCERTS FROM THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS as well as Classical WFMT/CHICAGO's EXPLORING MUSIC. He won the PEABODY AWARD for ST. PAUL SUNDAY in 1995.
Convention Chair AGNIESZKA ROGINSKA said, "While the focus of our conventions are largely technical in nature, we are delighted to provide our attendees with an opportunity to enjoy a discourse by a broadcaster celebrated for his performance behind the mic rather than behind the control room window."
