It's a long way from the Oregon Coast to Philadelphia, both in distance and in feeling. Jeff Brady takes it all in stride.
Brady is one of NPR's correspondents, based on the East Coast after many years living and working in the West. Those years include attending college at what is now Southern Oregon University, which will honor him with a distinguished alumni award as part of 2018 Commencement.
Did we mention Jeff once worked for JPR? We think he can still find the way to the studio.
We find out for sure when he visits for an interview about his journeys.
