About the Book

An avid fan of public radio, Phillips was driven to know more about the people who deliver the news, the conversation, and the diverse programs that she and millions of others rely on every day. The result is Public Radio: Behind the Voices, a collection of personal stories from more than forty of the most listened to voices in public radio, including Noah Adams, Susan Stamberg, Scott Simon, Diane Rehm, and Terry Gross.


“Phillips is a gifted journalist, able to draw out her subjects’ vibrant presence on the printed page.” —Publishers Weekly
