I was blessed to be a guest on this show a number of times over the past year. I thought that the host, Farai Chideya, was a woman of great character and intellect. NPR made a mistake when they cancelled the show.

I appeared on the Blogger's Roundtable on the following dates: January 14, 2009, August 20, 2008, June 18, 2008, April 9, 2008 and November 14, 2007.

I'm sorry to see it go...It's been nixed in my local market for a couple of weeks now. Tell Me More is on in its slot. It's a diverse show, so I appreciate that.

I will miss their voice and the diversity of opinion that they brought to NPR. We need to own our own networks so that shows like NPR News & Notes could continue to grow and earn sponsorship/ad revenue...
