WCQS adds 'State of Things' at noon weekdays

WCQS is now airing "The State of Things," an hour-long show about North Carolina culture, music and politics, weekdays at noon.

Hosted by Frank Stasio, "The State of Things" covers diverse issues and topics in North Carolina. Stasio talks with authors, musicians, politicians, policymakers and everyday citizens about subjects that matter to North Carolinians.
"WCQS has a strong history of service in Western North Carolina," Stasio, the former NPR correspondent who was named permanent host of "The State of Things" in 2006, said in a news release. "I am happy to be working with an organization that shares our values, which include a commitment to public service and quality journalism."
Stasio said "The State of Things" plans to continue to engage its audience in active dialogue as part of WCQS broadcast schedule, inviting listener participation through calls, emails and social media.
"I really hope we'll be hearing from WCQS listeners," he said. "We want ideas and suggestions for stories we should be covering and people we should meet."
