Inside the Cover is a new local show hosted by former KPTS Board of Trustees member and bibliophile Ted Ayres. KPTS viewers are curious, thoughtful and motivated people, so we wanted to offer a show to complement our programming and cultivate an interest in reading.
This new show will typically run after Doc Martin on Saturday nights at 8:45 p.m. and again Sunday nights at 10:45 p.m. Ted will share insights about the books he’s reading. If you have suggestions for books to feature, comments or questions, please send him an email. Let’s keep reading!
