Join Us - November 8

We are pleased to invite all members of the WBUR community to a special reception and program to celebrate the launch and naming of The Bob Oakes Legacy Circle. 

Bob Oakes, journalist and former host of WBUR's Morning Edition for over three decades, will discuss the future of journalism — including the changes he's seen throughout his career — with good friend and former colleague Robin Young, host of WBUR and NPR's Here & Now.
We are grateful to recognize and celebrate WBUR's legacy donors at this special event.

Wednesday, November 8, 2023

7 p.m. Program & naming ceremony

The Bob Oakes Legacy Circle recognizes donors who lay the foundation for WBUR’s future. Legacy Circle donors have remembered WBUR in their will or estate plan, or have created a life income gift.

Legacy gifts support essential reporting that matters—to you, to your community and to the world at large—for now and for generations to come.
