Closer Look Podcast

This is a newsmagazine featuring the key stories of the day that are relevant to you.  It’s a community forum for and about metro Atlanta.  Hosts Rose Scott and Jim Burress know the ins and outs of  covering news important around Atlanta.

They’ll lead discussions on the issues that impact where we live.  WABE’s news team is going into metro Atlanta neighborhoods to provide context, storytelling and a sense of place.  You’ll hear not only from the biggest newsmakers, but also from folks who don’t often get a voice.  

A Closer Look features a mix of local national and international stories and interviews.  It’s an interactive space to share ideas and dig deeper into issues.  It’s not just about Atlanta; it’s a program for Atlanta.
