Meet the Producer of BBC's Newest Program 'The Response'


You’re invited to a special event honoring the little-heard stories of Americans.

Join us on Thursday, January 12th for a reception of BBC and American Public Media’s newest series The Response – America’s Story, a radio program about who you are, what matters to you and your hopes for the future under a new US presidency. All told by people in their own words, using the technology in their pockets and sent to the BBC, The Response – America’s Story is a chance for Americans to share realities and reflections with the world, and for people around the world to tell the stories they want Americans to hear at this pivotal moment.

Kevin Core, a producer of The Response – America’s Story, will join us for a special discussion of the program and a preview of what’s to come.

The January 12 event will take place at 3pm at West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s Charleston headquarters (600 Capitol Street, across the street from Charleston Bread). Refreshments will be provided. Admission is free and open to the public. RSVP’s are requested below (or by calling 888-596-9729) by Tuesday, January 10.
