Ray Graf

News Anchor, Host of Vox Pop, and Web Content Manager

In a radio career that has spanned over 25 years, Ray Graf has done it all. At one time or another he worked as an overnight board operator, a commercial copywriter, a reporter and a voiceover announcer. For several years - a lifetime ago - he was a morning drive disc jockey.   Graf has been a member of the WAMC News team for 16 years. These days, he finds himself as The Roundtable's news anchor, panelist- and occasional guest host for Joe Donahue. "Radio news is not always easy," said Graf of his most recent radio vocation, "but it's not nearly as difficult as spinning a Michael Bolton record at 5:45 in the morning and pretending you're happy about it."

The University at Albany School of Public Health has initiated an “All School Read” program, which invites students, faculty, staff and community members to select and read an important book covering issues relevant for those preparing for careers in public health. The first book chosen for the program is Robert D Putnam’s Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis, which examines the growing inequality gap in the United States.
