Leroy Sievers will appear with Elizabeth Edwards on National Public Radio’s Talk of the Nation on Wednesday, July 9th in the 3 to 4 p.m. section of the show. Ted Koppel, who worked with Sievers for 14 years on Nightline will host the program.
Sievers, who has metastatic colorectal cancer, writes a regular web log for NPR — My Cancer. The blog has built a strong community of supportive commentors, who read and respond to Sievers daily.
Edwards and Sievers will be interviewed remotely. However, Talk of the Nation will be broadcast for a live audience from the Newseum in Washington.
