Freshmen Hear from 'This I Believe' Producer

Posted on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 [7:46 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College freshmen heard Monday afternoon from award-winning journalist Dan Gediman. Gediman is executive producer of the critically acclaimed radio series This I Believe. He's also co-editor of the book by the same name.

In 2004, Gediman revived the classic radio series that was started by legendary journalist Edward R. Murrow. The program has been aired on NPR and also on Bob Edwards' satellite and public radio show.

This school year, Lindsey Wilson freshmen are reading This I Believe as part of a shared experience in the "Freshman Seminar" class.

Gediman, of Louisville, KY, was on the A.P. White Campus to discuss the series' origins, explain why he revived it, and also play recordings from the past and current radio program. Gediman spoke in the Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, but because of the large size of LWC's freshman class his talk was broadcast to an overflow audience in V.P. Henry auditorium.
