Anne Ledford with some cool Ale-8 /
There's a new face in the NPR Library — lately she's been hiding in plain view at our Broadcast Library Reference Desk. Anne Ledford recently joined NPR from the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville, KY, where she facilitated metadata sharing between publishers and accessible media producers, and took a stand for quality metadata every day. In her short time at NPR she's already contributed to the stories we hear on-air and online. The archival sound of George Wallace heard in this Debbie Elliott piece is just one example: Rep. Artur Davis To Run For Alabama Governor.
However, the most important thing we learned about Anne today is that her Kentucky bourbon balls are totally badass. And we can thank her for a proper introduction to the one and only Ale-8-One. Welcome Anne!
