As quiet as it's kept, public radio is still--and perhaps forever will be--a medium that can move the masses. And if you don't believe us, just look at the life's work of media titans like Duchesne Drew, the current president of Minnesota Public Radio. Drew's news judgment, understanding of how to leverage his platform to serve the community and his overall commitment to using live audio as a conduit for change, is living proof that even those trained up in traditional media can have an incredible influence on the current storytelling climate. Drew does double duty as the Senior Vice President of the American Public Media Group, which produces national shows like Marketplace and The Current. And he's used these platforms to focus attention on the issues we should never forget, especially throughout the turbulence of 2020 after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the subsequent protests and the trials of the officers involved.
