New Horizons for Local Leaders

New Horizons for Local Leaders December 10, 2014

The exit interview is often a good time to hear an honest take and an unvarnished opinion about an organization or an industry formed by years of experience. Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll conduct exit interviews from three high-profile community leaders -- in business development, support for developmentally disabled children and religious leadership -- as they leave or prepare to leave their jobs. Join host Mike McIntyre.

The Doctor Will See You Now

The Doctor Will See You Now December 9, 2014

We'll look at the idea of walking around parts of downtown with alcohol in hand. Join host Rick Jackson starting at 9:00.

The unrest over the deadly shootings by police of a man in Ferguson, Missouri and a child in Cleveland have exposed a long simmering distrust of police by some in the black community. Earlier this week President Obama called for unity in arriving at a solution when he said, "we can build confidence and we can build trust but it's not going to happen overnight and it's not going to result from a conversation over a table in Washington."
