'The State Of Things' Returns To Asheville March 7th & 8th


Frank Stasio and his team are coming back to Asheville for two days of broadcasts of 'The State Of Things' from the studios of Blue Ridge Public Radio!  Thursday March 7th and Friday March 8th, 'The State Of Things' will come live from BPR's studios.  You can hear the show every weekday at noon on both of our channels, with a re-broadcast at 8 p.m. weekday nights on BPR News.

On Thursday March 7th, 'The State Of Things' crew and BPR staff will gather at Pulp (at the Orange Peel) from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  We'll talk North Carolina politics, the media, public radio, and more.  Come join us!  Admission is free.

Excited at the opportunity the build up the news service for both stations as well as help launch BPR News, Matt made the jump to Western North Carolina from Washington D.C. For the 8 years prior to coming to Asheville, he worked at the NPR member station in the nation's capital as a reporter and anchor. Matt primarily covered the state of Maryland, including 6 years of covering the statehouse in Annapolis. Prior to that, he worked at WMAL in Washington and Metro Networks in Pittsburgh, the city he was born and raised in.
