If his face isn’t familiar to you, his voice will be. Neal Conan was host of Talk of the Nation for 11 years, and he’s been behind the microphones of NPR for even longer.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, he joins us in the studio to talk about his memories of the long-running call-in show, his experiences working in the news business and what’s next on the horizon for him.
