WKSU Seeks Public Input at Community Conversations in Akron
WKSU continues its regional series of open forums with WKSU’s Community Conversations at the Akron Art Museum on Thursday, March 3, from 6:30-8 p.m. Attendees at the free event will be encouraged to contribute topics and issues they feel deserve increased attention. Registration through the Community Conversations page at WKSU.org is requested to reserve seating.
This is the third of an ongoing series of discussions in locations throughout Northeast Ohio. Because the Akron Art Museum opens its galleries for free on Thursdays, Community Conversations participants will be able to take in current exhibits as well.
“The first two Community Conversation events were terrific experiences,” says Mark Syroney, WKSU senior director for external affairs. “We can’t wait to meet more people who care so much about the challenges facing Northeast Ohio.”
In Akron, WKSU News Director Andrew Meyer, Program Director Ele Ellis and Morning Edition host Amanda Rabinowitz will take an active role in the discussion, describing WKSU’s typical news day and answering questions from attendees. Each WKSU Community Conversations’ event will feature different members from the WKSU news and programming staffs.
Future WKSU’s Community Conversations events include:
- April 7 – Kent State University at Tuscarawas (Amanda Rabinowitz)
- April 28 – Kent State University at Geauga (Vivian Goodman)
- May 26 – Kent State University at Salem (Tim Rudell)
- June 29 – Kent State University's Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg (Jeff St. Clair)
