The first president of National Public Radio has died. Don Quayle was 84 years old. He had a long career in public broadcasting — both television and radio. NPR's Susan Stamberg reflects on his impact.
Don Quayle gave me my first radio job. It was the early '60s and he was head of the Educational Radio Network — the precursor of NPR — a skinny little network of 12 East Coast stations that developed a daily drive-time news show. He hired me to help produce it. When this national network arose, he was an obvious choice to run it.

Murray State University has a Muslim student population of roughly 360 students, along with their families, which is relatively large for the small college town. Dr. Ihsan Alkhatib, who teaches in the Political Science Department, says he hadn't encountered many Saudis in his life until he came to western Kentucky. Tomorrow, students, faculty and community members are invited to meet and interact with people from different parts of the world in a day-long Islamic Culture Experience in the Curris Center Dance Lounge, hosted by the Murray State's Muslim Student Organization, including documentary films, cultural activities and food. Dr. Alkhatib and his wife Maysoon Suleiman-Khatib, an adjunct professor in the Organizational Communications department, join Kate Lochte on Sounds Good with the details.
