 SEMO.EDU

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 7:30 p.m., River Campus, Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall

Each week, more than 2.2 million listeners tune in to “The Diane Rehm Show,” one of public broadcasting’s most popular programs. Locally, Rehm can be heard weekday mornings on 90.9 KRCU. The show was named in the Top 10 list of most powerful programs in public radio in 2007 and 2008. In 2010, Rehm won a Peabody Award, considered among the most prestigious prizes in electronic media.

Rehm’s career nearly ended in 1998 because of spasmodic dysphonia, a neurological voice disorder that causes strained, difficult speech. She sought treatment and returned to the show. The National Council on Communicative Disorders recognized her work with a Communication Award, and in 2011, Rehm was awarded the Voice Education Research Awareness Award.

She has been included several times in the Washingtonian magazine’s list of the “100 Most Powerful Women,” most recently in 2011. Rehm has received many honors and awards in her 30-year career, including the inaugural Urbino (Italy) Press Award and the International Matrix Award from the Association for Women in Communications, and the Excellence in Journalism Award. She was named a fellow by the Society of Professional Journalists – the highest honor the society bestows on a journalist.

Rehm has authored three autobiographical books: “Finding My Voice,” “Toward Commitment: A Dialogue about Marriage,” and “Life with Maxie.”
