KEYNOTE SPEAKER: BILL RADKE

Bill Radke is an American radio talk show host, web video host, author, comedian, columnist and podcaster. He currently hosts Seattle’s KUOW-FM’s Week In Review.

After starting with KUOW as a University of Washington student in 1985, Radke was KUOW’s morning host in the ’90s and the creator of the past show Rewind, a news-satire show heard on KUOW and nationwide on NPR.

Radke moved away to Southern California to host American Public Media’s Weekend America and Marketplace Morning Report. He returned to KUOW in 2012

From hosting public events like Live from Town Hall to profiling performing and visual artists, Radke provides listeners with versitile content from a perspective of curiosity and a desire to “figure things out.”

Bill Radke’s keynote will begin at 12:30 p.m. on March 5 in the MIHS auditorium.

 

ON-SITE COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

WJEA will follow current guidelines regarding group events. This includes a requirement that all in-person attendees wear well-fitting masks and maintain at least a 3 ft. distance from those nearby.

We request that only those who have received at least two vaccinations attend this event. Anyone feeling symptomatic should not attend in person and may choose the virtual option.

Attendees are asked to have a second choice when attending sessions so rooms are filled only to half capacity. Please do not crowd classsrooms.

We appreciate your cooperation!
