It’s been eight months since Sheinelle Jones joined the weekend team at the "Today" show. The news anchor recently traveled back to her hometown of Wichita--on her first weekend off from the network-- to speak at the Alpha Kappa Alpha 80th anniversary banquet. KMUW’s Carla Eckels talks with Jones about her journalistic beginnings, which lead to her high-profile life at NBC in New York.

This is the final weekend for the exhibition FREE TEXTS by Stephanie Syjuco at the Ulrich Museum.

Syjuco is a recent recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship and her solo exhibition proves that the re-conceptualized Ulrich Underground is a perfect space for experimentation and contemporary artistic talent.

NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik has just published Murdoch’s World: The Last of the Old Media Empires, a volume that examines media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s reach across three continents—touching on Australia, North America and Europe, with a brief—and late—visit to Asia.

The book covers  many issues, including Murdoch’s youth in Australia, his expansion into television and his seeming inability to penetrate the Chinese media market.
