NYC Radio: WABC's Rita Cosby To Host "Back to Books" Special

Rita Cosby
77 WABC announces that Rita Cosby, award-winning host of “The Rita Cosby Show”, will present an exclusive web series called “Back to the Books Radio”, beginning Monday, August 31.

A new show debuts every weekday next week at 12:00 p.m. ET on a separate stream specifically designed for this series of dynamic and informative programs.

Throughout this week-long series, Cosby discusses timely and critical issues in American education with some of the nation’s most prominent voices in education, including highlighting: teacher and student standards, busing, charter schools, Common Core, and illegal immigrants and who should pay for their education. The series is a provocative and no-holds-barred look at the issues that are important to those who are concerned that the educational system is failing the country’s children—what is working, and what is not. The series looks in-depth at New York City’s massive public education system with more than one million students and 1,700 schools.

Each show is 60 minutes long and features interviews with top experts and thought leaders in New York and U.S. education.

Craig Schwalb, Program Director for WABC said: “One of the hottest topics in New York and the Tri-State is education. With school soon back in session, WABC focuses on the most important issues facing our schools with some of education’s most important voices. ‘Back to the Books Radio’ seeks to provide solutions to the complex problems facing our schools.”

Cosby said: “This series of candid discussions covers all angles of education from those on the frontlines to those in the head office. New York’s educational system will be put under the microscope.”
