In a continued effort to provide relevant, interesting and engaging programming to our statewide audience, MPB Think Radio provides Mississippi Edition, a weekday news magazine program. Mississippi Edition, hosted by Karen Brown, airs weekday mornings at 8:30 and features the latest news of the day and interviews with the people who are making the news themselves.  The program not only provides Mississippi news but also addresses the ways that national and world news affects our state.  Join Karen Brown as she shares the latest on Mississippi news, culture, and current events.

In this episode, Karen Brown talks to Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann about the state’s new voter ID law. Then, Education Reporter Annie Gilbertson and Capitol Reporter Jeffrey Hess file a team report on charter schools. Child advocate Alma Powell, wife of the former Secretary of State, talks about raising the next generation of Americans. And two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Marshall Ramsey talks about his new book, “Fried Chicken and Wine.”
