Terry Gross at Sanders Theatre

As the host of Fresh Air, NPR’s weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues, Terry Gross’s interviews are heard by more than four and a half million people on nearly 500 public radio stations.  Her guests have included many of the most celebrated artists, writers, actors, and musicians of our time, such as Philip Roth, James Brown, John Travolta, Sonny Rollins, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.  Gross is known for her thoughtful, probing interview style.

Terry Gross began hosting and producing Fresh Air in 1975, when it was a local program broadcast by WHYY in Philadelphia.  NPR has distributed the daily program since 1987, and it is now NPR’s most listened-to program, after Morning Edition and All Things Considered.  Terry Gross’s book All I Did Was Ask:  Conversations with Writers, Actors, Musicians and Artists was published by Hyperion in 2004.  In 1994, Fresh Air received a Peabody Award. In 1999, America Women in Radio and Television gave Gross a Gracie Award in the category National Network Radio Personality.  In 2003, Gross received the Edward R. Murrow Award from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, for advancing the “growth, quality and positive image of radio.”  At the 2007 National Book Awards ceremony, she received the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary community. She has also received the 2011 Authors Guild Award for Distinguished Service to the Literary Community.

In this performance, Terry Gross reveals more about some of the most fascinating conversations ever recorded as she  plays sound bites and discusses interviews that went especially well (or especially badly), and then answers audience questions.
