As we prioritize the health and safety of our community, we're looking forward to this year's modern take on WBUR's premier annual fundraising event. We hope you'll consider joining us. WBUR, your NPR news station, needs your support in this time, more than ever.

  • Meet the host and executive producer of The Daily, the wildly popular New York Times podcast and radio show. Michael Barbaro and Lisa Tobin will talk to WBUR’s political correspondent, Kimberly Atkins, about narrative journalism, the power of audio and their experience covering the biggest stories of our time.

  • Conan O’Brien, a native of Brookline and former host of The Tonight Show and The Late Night Show, will also join us for the evening to speak with NPR’s Scott Simon. O’Brien is currently the host of Conan on TBS and has his own successful podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend. Simon is the host of Weekend Edition Saturday and one of the hosts of NPR’s morning news podcast Up First.
