New Letters
Sunday at 8:30pm

In 1977, David Ray and his wife, Judy, began the audio literature program New Letters on the Air, a half-hour radio program featuring writers reading from and talking about their work. For many years, Rebekah Presson produced and hosted each show, a task taken in 1996 by Angela Elam (a WUGA alum). The program now stands as the longest continuously-running broadcast of a national literary radio series, with more than 1,200 programs by many of the world’s most prominent writers. The radio program widens the scope of the magazine to promote great literature both on the page and on the air.
