Midmorning: William Cope Moyers and Cokie Roberts

Posted at 7:38 AM on February 13, 2007 by Bill Wareham

In his new memoir, William Cope Moyers details his addiction to drugs and alcohol, his complicated relationship with his famous father, and the revelation that led to his eventual recovery. At 9 a.m. we'll rebroadcast Kerri Miller's recent conversation with Moyers, the author with Katherine Ketcham of Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption. He's vice president of external affairs at the Hazelden Foundation.

At 10 a.m., we'll hear Kerri's conversation from last fall with NPR political analyst Cokie Roberts. She talks about covering and commenting on Congress, and she reaches back into her beginnings in journalism. Roberts is a senior news analyst at NPR. She's the author of Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation and We Are Our Mother's Daughters. She's won many awards, including the Edward R. Murrow Award.
