Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Ed Gordon has brought his skills and expertise to the world of podcasts.
On Monday (December 14), the first episode of the "One Hundred: The Ed Gordon Podcast" was released on iHeartRadio. As one of the industry’s premier interviewers, Gordon brings his hard-hitting, inspiring, intelligent, honest, and direct style to the weekly conversations on "One Hundred." Discussions delve into politics, pop culture, current affairs and more via iconic guests and in-depth one-on-ones as only Ed Gordon can deliver.
As noted by the media vet, each episode is "more of a conversation" rather than an interview and, as he's done throughout his career, Gordon brings listeners the full truth and keeps it 100.
In the first episode of "One Hundred: The Ed Gordon Podcast" Gordon chats with NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson, who, along with other civil rights leaders, recently met with President-elect Joe Biden and his team to talk about the group's expectations of the incoming administration.
