About the Author

She became producer and host of Fresh Air in 1975, when it was still a local program. Fresh Air won a Peabody Award in 1994 for its “probing questions, revelatory interviews, and unusual insights.” In 2003 Terry herself received public radio’s highest honor, the Edward R. Murrow Award. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband, writer Francis Davis.
