Local News News About WFPL

We’ll air an NPR News Special about Japan today at 2pm. NPR’s Neal Conan will host, and although details are sketchy, we expect to hear from NPR reporters on the ground in Japan, as well as other guests. We expect NPR to focus on the developing nuclear story there, as well as the earthquake recovery efforts.

UPDATE: Conan will talk with NPR’s Doualy Xaykaothao, who is in Koriyama City, NPR’s Joe Palca, who’s covering the nuclear crisis, a member of a search and rescue team and Hawaii Public Radio News Director Bill Dorman.
