Rachel Martin, host of 'Morning Edition,' coming to Syracuse this fall

Mike Morgan

WRVO is bringing another well-known NPR personality to the central New York area this fall. Rachel Martin, host of “Morning Edition,” is visiting Syracuse Monday, September 16 for an evening with listeners and members of the station. She’ll share her experience as host of the most-listened-to news radio program in the country and as National Security Correspondent for NPR.

Before hosting “Morning Edition,” Martin was host of “Weekend Edition” each Sunday. As a reporter covering national security, she covered both defense and intelligence issues. Martin traveled regularly to Iraq and Afghanistan with the Secretary of Defense, reporting on the U.S. wars and the effectiveness of the Pentagon’s counterinsurgency strategy. She also reported extensively on the changing demographic of the U.S. military -- from the debate over whether to allow women to fight in combat units -- to the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.

Join us on Monday, September 16 at Syracuse Stage for an evening with Rachel Martin.

Ticketing details: Tickets are $20 each and will be available at the door, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Syracuse Stage. Cash only at the door!
