Tempe events include A Conversation with David Greene  co-host of NPR’s “Morning Edition” at Tempe Center for the Arts on February 2, 2018,  7:30 p.m. “Morning Edition”  airs on KJZZ 91.5 FM, weekdays from 3-9 a.m. Greene joins Steve Inskeep and Rachel Martin in hosting both “Morning Edition” and NPR’s morning news podcast “Up First.”

David Green joined NPR in 2005. Over the years with NPR, he has covered New Orleans during the days following Hurricane Katrina; the White House during the Bush Administration; and Hillary Clinton’s entire 2008 campaign. For two years prior to taking on his current role in 2012, he was NPR foreign correspondent based in Moscow covering the region from Ukraine and the Baltics, east to Siberia. He also spent a month in Libya reporting stories in the most difficult of circumstances as NATO bombs fell on Tripoli. He was honored with the 2011 Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize from WBUR and Boston University for that coverage of the Arab Spring.

Those who would like to spend some extra time getting to know David, can purchase VIP Meet & Greet tickets which include dinner with David, wine and preferred seating at the presentation.
