7/3 Radio Theatre: Andy Bennett of Renegade Theater Company

Andy Bennett makes a great show of talking up Renegade's New Works Festival next week as an opportunity to focus on and support writers.  Bennett paints a picture of a process that gets playwrights out of their solitary garrets and brings them together in a supportive, creative community.  But has he told them that the Festival begins with a Write Fight on Wednesday where eight writers compete in a "single elimination tournament live on stage"??

Scheduled fighters include: Mayor Don Ness, Lucie Amundsen, Abraham Curran, Mary Fox, Claire Kirch, Christa Lawler, MacKenzie McCullum and Megan Rekowski.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
