WKSU and the Hudson Library & Historical Society Present Terry Pluto and Amanda Rabinowitz
Each week, sports columnist and Northeast Ohio legend Terry Pluto brings his talents to WKSU. “Morning Edition” host Amanda Rabinowitz is his regular partner, engaging the audience with insights, predictions and general observations on the health, well-being and success of the region’s beloved teams. Despite a general lack of championship rings, Cleveland sports franchises inspire fans who are recognized for their loyalty and enthusiasm.
On Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 6:30 p.m., Pluto and Rabinowitz bring their show live to the Hudson Library & Historical Society (located in Hudson’s First & Main shopping district). The free event begins with the duo discussing the fates and fortunes of the Indians, Browns and Cavs before opening the conversation to the audience with a spirited question-and-answer session. Seating is limited, and registration is required. “An Evening with Terry Pluto and Amanda Rabinowitz” is co-presented by WKSU and the Hudson Library & Historical Society. Information and registration is available at WKSU.org/events or hudsonlibrary.org.
Representatives from Hudson’s The Learned Owl Book Shop will be on hand to sell copies of Pluto’s books.
Support for this event is provided by Dave Walter BMW and Dave Walter VW.
