#MediaMonday – Ken Rudin

Alison is freshly back from her trip to Las Vegas to attend the Public Relations Society of America’s 2011 Western District Conference – and she brought us back a Media Monday game!

Therefore, this week’s profile is on the one-and-only Ken Rudin, NPR’s Political Junkie where, for most of the past 20 years (beginning in 1991), he has been, as political editor, the eyes and ears of political coverage for the network.

During the event, he acted as the PRSA Western District Conference Luncheon Keynote on the topic of “Navigating the Absurdities: Politics, Politicians and Modern Media.”

His fun fact?

He has a MASSIVE collection of nearly 800 political buttons and pins from the past hundred or so years. And – he uses them as an interactive game with crowds. Watch, play and enjoy here!

How many did you get right?

Our fave? Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Ber-Ann!

*Note – if you are new to Media Monday, it’s basically a weekly blog column to help our readers get to know the media just a little bit better. With a TWIST! No, we aren’t posting story pitch tips or media lists, but instead great stories from the media themselves about their lives, their work and other little known facts! Full list of profilees available here.*
