Francis Lam to be new host of NPR's "The Splendid Table."

Apparently you have to read everything, including the Philippine Canadian Inquirer to keep abreast of news like this.

And notice, the photo of Francis in his usually splendid attire is by me.


Nice sleuthing. New blood will help that show.

Will it ever. I can’t stand Lynn R-K…her smug tone is incredibly irritating. I generally have NPR on in my car and my house almost all the time, but when Splendid Table comes on, I change the station.


ah - I liked LRK. She has that 70’s public radio tone.

I am just listening to the show (podcast because the actual show is never on when I can listen) where she introduces Lam. I had no idea, I had missed this post.

It will be interesting to see how he alters the show to fit him. I’ll keep listening.

I don’t dislike her, but she just seems rooted in the last century.
