Kansas City, MO – The Bejing Olympics have grabbed the attention of Americans this week. We decided to check in with our former KCUR intern, Anthony Tao, who's there, working as a freelance journalist and blogger. Tao is a frequent contributor to ESPN online. You can check out his blog at Heart of Beijing.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Susan admits that her “first love” was radio, being an avid listener since childhood. However, she spent much of her career in mental health, healthcare administration, and sports psychology (Susan holds a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Bloch School of Business at UMKC.) In the meantime, Wilson satisfied her journalistic cravings by doing public speaking, providing “expert” interviews for local television, and being a guest commentator/contributor to KPRS’s morning drive time show and the teen talk show “Generation Rap.”
