Kansas University

Delano Lewis, former President of NPR and U.S. Ambassador to South Africa, came to Eastern Michigan University's campus 02/17/2019 to speak with the Eastern Leaders Group about the state of media and politics.  WEMU's Patrick Campion sat down with him to get his thoughts on the role public media can play in today's world and why stations like WEMU are important community resources.
