Steve Inskeep, the voice of Morning Edition for the past 15 years, will serve as WHQR’s luncheon speaker. Fans of NPR’s flagship program Morning Edition start their days with Inskeep’s experienced, award-winning reporting and his fair-minded yet probing approach to the issues that confront all of us.
