NPR's Mara Liasson Talks About Covering Today's White House

NPR/Stephen Voss

Mara Liasson is an integral part of NPR’s political coverage. She’s a senior political correspondent and sometimes White House correspondent. She also provides analysis for Fox News.

Next Thursday she’ll speak at The Bing in downtown Spokane at an event for Spokane Public Radio. She’ll also be interviewed onstage by my colleague, Steve Jackson. He had a chance this week to talk with her.

Steve was part of the Spokane Public Radio family for many years before he came on air in 1999. His wife, Laurie, produced Radio Ethiopia in the late 1980s through the '90s, and Steve used to “lurk in the shadowy world” of Weekend SPR. Steve has done various on air shifts at the station, including nearly 15 years as the local Morning Edition host. Currently, he is the voice of local weather and news during All Things Considerd, writing, editing, producing and/or delivering newscasts and features for both KPBX and KSFC. Aside from SPR, Steve ,who lives in the country, enjoys gardening, chickens, playing and listening to music, astronomy, photography, sports cars and camping.
