Leslie Restivo and her dog, Cooper, are part of a long tradition: For generations, The Blowing Rock has beckoned visitors to stand 3,000 feet above the Johns River Gorge and take in spectacular views.

Our State Magazine - Editor-in-Chief, Elizabeth Hudson, returned to the airwaves of WNCW to discuss their March edition. Elizabeth takes us through the pages, pointing out stories on Blowing Rock, The Inn in Maggie Valley, Homeward Bound (a Charlotte landmark), and the story Kings of the Road, a classic car community. This conversation originally aired March 11, 2022.

Paul brings you regional news during NPR's Morning Edition from 7 to 9 weekdays, the "Friday Feature" on Fridays and "More to the Story" on Wednesdays. Curating WNCW's Art Break and public service news rounds out his commitment to the communities we serve.
