Author Steven V. Roberts spoke at WRKF's Sixth Annual Founders Luncheon

Steven V. Roberts was our speaker this year. His 50 years in journalism include a nationally syndicated newspaper column and 25 years at the New York Times.

He spoke at the luncheon on Friday, September 30, 2022, at the Crowne Plaza, Baton Rouge. After the event, Steven signed his book, Cokie: A Life Well-Lived. It’s a chronicle of his late wife’s career at NPR and her devotion to the welfare of women.

WRKF's Board of Directors presented the Founders Award to Taylor Caffery, host of our long-running Saturday night music show, Hootenanny Power.

Thanks to all who attended and supported the luncheon. You help ensure WRKF remains a vital source of independent news and cultural programs.
