President Messitte Wins Radio Honor

Zach Messitte, Ripon College PresidentIt isn’t often that a college president is recognized for his work as a radio host and interviewer, but Ripon College President Zach Messitte received just such an honor last month at the Public Radio News Directors annual awards banquet in Cleveland.

At the event, hosted by NPR’s Scott Simon, Messitte won second place in the News/Public Affairs Program category for his interview with Nada Bakri, the wife of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anthony Shadid. Shadid, a reporter with The New York Times, died while reporting from Syria in February, 2012. Bakri is also a reporter with The New York Times.

Messitte was host of the KGOU program “World Views” from 2009 to 2012 while serving as the dean of the College of International Studies at the University of Oklahoma.
