Vice President for Outreach Becki Gray briefs WTSB Radio listeners this afternoon about the week’s major developments in politics and public policy. The Mount Airy News published Gray’s column about education reforms taking effect in the new school year. Mitch Kokai filled in for Gray on WTSB earlier this week. Kokai served as guest host for Bill LuMaye Monday on Talk Radio WPTF and discussed the “Rockin’ the Wall” screening as a guest on WPTF as well. Kokai offered a state government update for Curtis Wright on WMYT Radio.

Chapel Hill’s Daily Tar Heel interviewed Kokai for articles about the reported “gender gap” in North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race and a recent controversy involving comments from U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger. Kokai will discuss this year’s election season later this morning with two separate groups of Raleigh Charter High School students.
