On New Year's Day on Morning Edition and All Things Considered, WMUK continued its review of 2015 by re-airing Earlene McMichael's interview with Anita Hill. (Press now to listen.) Hill helped spur changes in thinking and laws about workplace sexual harassment with her nationally-televised testimony against her former boss Clarence Thomas during his U.S. Supreme Court judgeship hearings in the '90s. McMichael interviewed Hill  on the same night she spoke in Kalamazoo, Mich., on April 13.

Earlene McMichael was WMUK's local host of NPR's Morning Edition from August 2012 through October 2021. A former, long-time Kalamazoo Gazette editor, reporter, and columnist, she was a news anchor at WHCU-FM when it was owned by Cornell University, her alma mater.
