Professionals in the realm of television and radio are slated for visits to Ohio State in March.
Ira Glass, also known as the voice behind NPR’s “This American Life,” is scheduled to speak March 2 in an event sponsored by the Ohio Union Activities Board titled “Reinventing Radio with Ira Glass.”
Glass has been working for NPR in some facet or another since the age of 19, when he was hired on as an intern in Washington, D.C. In 1995, he founded “This American Life,” a weekly show dedicated to bringing to light an aspect of American life, typically surrounding a theme.
March 6 is set to see the arrival of RJ Mitte, who is known for his portrayal of Walter Jr. “Flynn” White on AMC’s “Breaking Bad.” OUAB’s event featuring Mitte is called “Breaking Good: Raising Awareness with RJ Mitte.”
Witte is famous for playing the son of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) on the Emmy-award-winning drama. On the show, Mitte not only acted as if he had cerebral palsy, but also lives with a mild form of the disease, which is a disorder that can affect functions involved with the brain and nervous system.
Tickets for Glass’ event are set to be released Feb. 10, and for Mitte’s, Feb. 17.
