This Week on HearSay, November 27 - 30, 2006

Monday, November 27
We'll catch up on the latest headlines and take your calls, including the latest on the fate of historic Fort Monroe.  Detailed designs for the future development of the Army base were recently unveiled, but questions still remain over who will eventually be in charge of redevelopment once the Army vacates in 2011.  We'll talk about it on today's HearSay with FADA Chairman Bob Harper, Delegate Tom Gear (R) Hampton, and Robert Crouch, Assistant to the Governor for Commonwealth Preparedness.

WHRO is in search of a new President and CEO and we want your input.  On today’s HearSay, we’ll talk with Henry Light, Chairman of the Governing Board at WHRO and Jack Ezzell, board member and search committee Co-Chair, about their nationwide hunt for a new leader.  What type of person would you like to see at the helm?  We’ll take you calls and questions in the first half hour.

We’ll meet the “History Guys”, three Virginia scholars about to launch a new radio call-in show focused on American History.  Answering questions about the past and how we got to where we are today, hosts Ed Ayers, Brian Balogh, and Peter Onuf offer informed, frequently profound and inspiring, and often humorous insights into America's history and culture.  The pilot will be available in March 2007, but we’ll get a preview and let you ask your questions on this segment of HearSay.
