The Roundtable

Weekdays, 9:00am

WAMC's The Roundtable is an award-winning, nationally recognized eclectic talk program. The show airs from 9am to noon each weekday and features news, interviews, in-depth discussion, listener call-ins, music, and much (much) more! Hosted by Joe Donahue and produced by Sarah LaDuke, The Roundtable tackles serious and lighthearted subjects, looking to explore the many facets of the human condition with civility, respect and responsibility.

The show's hallmark is thoughtful interviews with A-list newsmakers, authors, artists, sports figures, actors, and people with interesting stories to tell. Since hitting the airwaves in May of 2001, The Roundtable has interviewed the likes of Arthur Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Maya Angelou, Madeleine Albright, Jimmy Carter, John McCain, Bob Dole, Bill O'Reilly, Steve Martin, James Taylor, Bill Cosby, Stephen King, Melissa Etheridge and lots of other really cool people. Plus, Wilco does our theme song. What more can you ask for?

Hunger Action Network of New York State

Emergency Food Programs continue to struggle during a recession to feed a growing number of hungry people in our region. Activists says a new study of hunger in New York State shows that emergency food programs can ever be a substitute for increased government action to end the growing problem of hunger.

Mark Dunlea, Executive Director of the Hunger Action Network in NYS, says instead of dealing with emergencies, food pantries and soup kitchens over the last 30 years have been forced by government inaction to evolve into supplemental sources of food for households who need assistance on an ongoing basis.
