WNRN’s Wakeup Call: Community Roundtable

This week on WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wakeup Call, a community roundtable on current events. Yes, it’s the week where host Rick Moore collects area citizens, gathers them around a microphone, and gets their opinion on issues facing Central Virginia. In the studio are Isabel Stanton, a graduate student at UVA and a DJ at WNRN, and Thalia Miller, who says she “plays a lot of golf.” Among the issues discussed: Albemarle County banning panhandling in the medians and intersections, Charlottesville dropping from the #1 place to live to the #90 slot, and local thoughts on the recent terrorist bombings in London.

WNRN Sunday Morning Wakeup Call: Barbara Nordin, the Hook’s Fearless Consumer

In a world where consumer choices are endless, disagreements and misunderstandings are bound to occur. Who steps in to negotiate? Barbara Nordin, that’s who. Nordin writes the Hook’s Fearless Consumer column. In every issue, Nordin investigates the complaints of those who feel they’ve been wronged by businesses. On this week’s installment of WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wakeup Call, she deals with steak knives, German lemons, and reveals that the consumer isn’t necessarily always right. Wakeup Call Host Rick Moore begins the show with a monologue addressing the irony of a terrorist attack while world leaders meet to discuss ending poverty.

Wakeup Call: Trends in Elementary Education

An elementary school teacher is one of the hardest professions in the known universe. Not only do you have to cope with several children at once, you’ll also have to deal with the politics of accountability, concerned parents, and scarce resources. On this week’s show, Rick Moore speaks with two people who’ll help us understand why someone would take on the challenge.

“Roger” is a college student seeking to be an elementary school teacher, and if he does, he’ll be a rare breed. Most teachers of students in kindergarten to fifth grade are women. “Kathy” is a ten-year veteran of teaching who currently educates kids in an urban school district somewhere in Virginia.

The weekly commentary considers Independence Day in a country gone mad.

WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wakeup Call airs every week at 11:00 AM. Rick will take your phone calls at 979-0919 or 1-877-967-6762.
