The Story archived on WUNC.
Produced in the studios of WUNC, the program is hosted by Dick Gordon. The Story offers an hour of stories, five days a week. The show begins with a long form conversation with host Dick Gordon; some days we are linked to the news and other days we mix it up; if a person has a great story to tell we might give them most of the show, another show might have 5-6 segments.
The program ended its run on WUNC in the late fall of 2013.
