Tuesday, December 27th at 11:30 a.m. at the

Engineering Society of Baltimore, 11 West Mt. Vernon Place

We are very excited to have Sheilah Kast as our speaker this year.  Ms. Kast hosts a daily interview show called On the Record on WYPR 88.1 FM public radio in Baltimore.  In 2014, she and her team at WYPR’s Maryland Morning won a prestigious Dupont-Columbia University award for an intensive examination of the roots of inequality in the Baltimore region.

Ms. Kast has been a journalist since she graduated from the Catholic University of America – first at the Washington Star and then at ABC News, where she covered the White House, the Congress and the economy.  She also reported overseas and was the ABC News correspondent on the ground in Moscow in August 1991 at the start of the coup that signaled the end of the Soviet empire.  She has also reported for NPR and CNN.

Ms. Kast has launched and hosted two interview shows on public television – one in association with BusinessWeek, one with AARP.  She and her husband, Jim Rosapepe, wrote Dracula is Dead, a travel book about what they learned during the years he served as U.S. Ambassador to Romania.

Sheilah Kast serves on the boards of the non-profit Mental Health Association of Maryland, the American News Women’s Club in Washington, and the Institute for Human Virology at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine.


The Luncheon is open to all Harvard-Radcliffe alumni/alumnae and their guests.
