Bridging Gaps Podcast

UNT SYSTEM PRESENTS BRIDGING GAPS PODCAST WITH CHANCELLOR LESA ROE AND FOX 4’S SHANNON MURRAY

Lesa Roe, Chancellor for the University of North Texas System, and TV reporter Shannon Murray of Fox 4,  co-host a new Dallas-based podcast that is distributed via iTunes, YouTube, SoundCloud and Spreaker. Titled Bridging Gaps, Roe and Murray’s thoughtful podcast explores issues in DFW and Texas – with a focus on bringing partners and subject experts together in purposeful conversation for the greater good of the community.

Roe, who came to the UNT System in 2017 after serving as Deputy Administrator for NASA, said she’s excited to work with Murray to discuss important issues with thought leaders from a myriad of industries, causes and backgrounds. Each podcast will be accompanied by a written companion piece, penned by Roe, and posted to DallasInnovates.com.

In her role on FOX 4’s Good Day morning program, Murray frequently leaves the comfort of KDFW’s downtown Dallas studios to cover the biggest stories in North Texas. And Murray’s community-connectedness pairs perfectly with Roe – who travels frequently to UNT in Denton, UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth and UNT Dallas, while also actively serving on the Board of Directors for the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Bridging Gaps will be recorded and produced each month from UNT System headquarters in Downtown Dallas. For more information about Bridging Gaps, please email the show’s producers at info@untystem.edu.
