March 12Program Change

Since our featured speaker, Deborah McDermott from the Portsmouth Herald, is unable to join to us on Wednesday morning during the final program , we'll be treated to the wonderfully entertaining Ron Howard 1994 film, "The Paper". This is a film depicting 24 hours in a newspaper editor's professional and personal life. The movie stars Michael Keaton, Glenn Close, Marisa Tomei and Robert Duvall.
