It's the end of an era on WVXU-FM. Around Cincinnati, the 7 p.m. Sunday arts and culture show, airs its final broadcast after 15 years this Sunday.

It's provided an important voice to local theaters, authors, musicians, actors and other performers, especially after the Enquirer's arts and entertainment staff was mostly disbanded in 2014, and Northern Kentucky University sold off folk-rock WNKU-FM in 2017.

In her latest book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin draws upon four of the presidents she has studied most closely – Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson – to offer an enlightening exploration into the early development, growth and exercise of leadership.

Renowned historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin was in town last month and stopped by our studio to talk with Mark Heyne about her newest book, seven years in the making, entitled The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism.
