In Other News with Nat & Tony

NEXTpittsburgh’s first podcast “In Other News” is hosted by award-winning journalists Tony Norman and Natalie Bencivenga. Their warm, thoughtful rapport was built over the years spent together in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newsroom. In this new venture, they focus on all the news you need to know — but maybe haven’t heard about elsewhere, as well as discussions of the state of the media and ways to activate listeners to become engaged with issues that matter to them.
