Urbana native Jeremy Hobson returns to Illinois Public Media, the station that launched his career, to share the return of his national radio call-in-show, The Middle. The idea for the show originated when Hobson saw the media overlooking the people who are geographically, politically, or philosophically in “the middle”, and his live programming will focus on listening to everyday Americans. Hobson is a veteran public media journalist who got his start in his hometown Urbana, by contributing to WILL’s Treehouse Radio at the age of 9.
