AMERICAN UNIVERSITY Variety WAMU/WASHINGTON, D.C. will mark the 30th anniversary of THE DIANE REHM SHOW with a gala celebrating the work and longevity of REHM at the ANDREW W. MELLON Auditorium, TONIGHT (9/24). The gala will benefit WAMU 88.5 and its unique 24-hour mixture of news, public affairs talk programming and traditional American music.
"The world of talk radio programming has changed radically over these 30 years, but seems more important than ever to our national debates on critical issues," said REHM. "Those of us who produce THE DIANE REHM SHOW have always been committed to civil and informative dialogue, and I am grateful to all who've had a part in the growth and success of the program, including AMERICAN UNIVERSITY, WAMU 88.5 and NPR."
