Central Ohio Official Appointed To Climate Change Panel

President Obama earlier this month appointed Franklin County Commissioner Paula Brooks to the 26-member Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience. She joins a group charged with advising the administration on ways the federal government can help U.S. communities as they experience impacts of climate change associated with global warming. Obama has signed an executive order directing federal agencies to take a series of steps to make it easier for communities to strengthen resilience to extreme weather and to make other preparations. Brooks is the only Ohioan on the panel.

Mike Foley joined WCBE in February 2000, coming from WUFT in Gainesville, Florida. Foley has worked in various roles, from producing news and feature stories to engineering Live From Studio A sessions. A series of music features Foley started in 2018 called Music Journeys has grown into a podcast and radio show. He also assists in developing other programs in WCBE's Podcast Experience. Foley hosts The Morning Mix, a weekday music show featuring emerging and established musicians, our Columbus-area and Ohio-based talent, and additional artists that inspire him.
