Dialogues on Education

“Dialogues on Education”

tayek-headshot07A valuable supplement to the Scholastic Games is a radio news program which follows each quiz program on WEOL radio (AM 930).  It premiered in January, 2007, and is hosted by award-winning journalist Bob Tayek.  Broadcasts highlight education success stories from Lorain county, and the initiatives that bring them about.  In addition to following the quiz broadcasts, the programs are also archived here to be reviewed or downloaded as podcasts.

LOOKING FOR GUESTS:  The producers gladly welcome any suggestions as to good people to interview and how to reach them.  If your school system or organization has a story to tell,  tell us whom to contact.  Our programs are produced mainly from telephone interviews which maximize timeliness and convenience for all involved.  Your assistance can be vital to our success.
