The first of many conversations
Debuting tonight on UMFM and running monthly from 5:30 — 6 PM CT (in place of Art World Innovators, which has graciously offered up its timeslot to accommodate the broadcasts) is In Conversation with UM President Michael Benarroch. As the title implies, this is a chance to hear first-hand from the head of campus.
In future episodes there will be an opportunity to discuss specific plans and initiatives at the U of M but for this debut episode President Benarroch discusses the path that took him to Ontario to serve as Provost at Ryerson before returning to Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba (where he had previously served as Dean of the Asper School of Business).
In addition to its monthly FM broadcast, all episodes of the show will be available as on-demand, downloadable podcasts.
