Campbell Conversations, airing on WRVO Public Media, the largest NPR-affiliate radio station in Central New York, for almost 13 years, was created by Grant Reeher, director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute.

Each week he welcomes a different writer, politician, activist, public official or business professional to talk about their work. Many guests are from the central New York community, while others are from all around the nation.

Reeher stresses that the discussions on the Campbell Conversations are simply just conversations, and that he never wants the program to “get nasty.” Reeher wants to establish respect and for listeners to see how that is possible, even when talking about politics and social issues.

“I hope that there is a model of civil discourse that (listeners) can hear and appreciate because we’re not yelling at each other, and I try to steer the guests from doing the same,” Reeher says.
