Regular readers of this site know that we both support and enjoy a good relationship with WXPN. But the fact is, we have never really mentioned our fondness for one of Philly's other public-ish radio stations, WRTI 90.1FM. Yes, the Temple University-based jazz and classical station that you - yes, probably YOU - totally take for granted.
Temple University Emeritus Professor of Social Work Dr. Jean Moore has been an invaluable and accomplished member of the University faculty since 1969, and an award-winning radio journalist at WRTI since 1997. It is with immeasurable gratitude that we announce that University Forum, the highly regarded public-affairs program that Dr. Moore hosts and produces, airs for the final time on Saturday, September 15th at 6 am.
(Originally published in April, 2000, in Tempo magazine) Dr. Jean Moore is the host and executive producer of the award-winning WRTI public affairs program University Forum. The show addresses pertinent social issues: mental and physical health, violence, women’s issues, and more. She brings to the airwaves the vast and varied experience she accumulated in the public domain as a social worker and social welfare administrator.
How many times have you stayed glued to the seat of your car - refusing to turn the radio off even though you've arrived at your destination - because you just had to hear the end of that piano concerto or jazz tune you were listening to on WRTI?
