After The Olympics


Kansas City, MO – The 2008 Olympics have come to an end, and the throngs of tourists have gone home. So what was it like to experience China as it became the center of world attention? And what's it like now that the excitement has died down? Throughout the summer, we caught up with sportswriter and former KCUR intern Anthony Tao, who grew in the Kansas City area. He's now in the fifth month of his visit to Beijing; Susan checked in with him one last time.

Check out Tao's articles about the Beijing Olympics for ESPN's website, and his personal blog.

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.”
