Today we talk once again with NHPR President and CEO Betsy Gardella.  She also serves on the NPR Board, and we’ll talk about the national picture, including the current debate over federal funding of public broadcasting.  We’ll also cover events here at NHPR, from efforts to keep up with the digital age to expanding local coverage.  And Betsy will take your questions and comments.
