From CIA to United Way: Weld for B’ham on Diverse Agencies
This week, CIA Director John Brennan met with Birmingham City School students as part of a self-described crusade to make the agency more diverse. That’s one story in the latest Weld for Birmingham. Editor Nick Patterson joins us most Thursdays to discuss Weld’s top stories. He tells WBHM’s Dan Carsen about Brennan’s visit, and about Weld’s cover story on the United Way and area nonprofit groups. Their conversation ranges from the United Way to the CIA, whose director made himself accessible to students … within reason.
Nick Patterson is the editor for WELD for Birmingham, a weekly newspaper covering news and politics, arts and culture and community engagement in the Magic City. Patterson joins WBHM each Thursday during All Things Considered to discuss WELD's top stories.
