Wordy Birds


  • News & Public Affairs

Books are wonderful and deeply rewarding but the truth is most people don’t read -very often. They’re also expensive and time consuming. Wordy Birds is a program about books and ideas that airs every Friday at noon on WRIR. Host Liz Humes has read a book a week since February 2005, when the first version of Wordy Birds debuted on WRIR 97.3 FM.

The program brings to the airwaves both local and international best-selling authors. The only limitation in topics covered is that the interviews are done face to face. It’s not high-brow book radio, it’s a book show for people who don’t read, hosted by someone that does. In turn you get researched informed conversations that are informed, engaging and sometimes funny.

An archive of Wordy Birds can be found on <a href=”http://www.wordybirds.org/”>www.wordybirds.org</a>. Publicists and authors interested in interviews can email Liz at liz(dot)[email protected]

Thanks for tuning in.

Note: This show rotates with City of Ruins – (4th Monday: City of Ruins)
