Remembering Former TPR Board Member John McLaughlin

Sep 8, 2017

Former Texas Public Radio board member John McLaughlin passed away on August 31, following heart surgery. He was 70 years old. Born in Philadelphia, John graduated from St. Joseph's University and served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. His career included two decades each with the airline industry and in the financial industry. Many of us at TPR knew him through his work on the TPR Board of Directors from 2005-2008.

From TPR's President and CEO, Joyce Slocum:

The San Antonio City Council has formally authorized an agreement among the City of San Antonio, Bexar County, the Alameda Theater Conservancy, and Texas Public Radio to renovate the historic Alameda Theater in downtown San Antonio.

The partners created the Alameda Theater Conservancy in May 2017 to operate and program the Alameda Theater. The initial board includes representatives from the City, County, TPR, and La Familia Cortez.

Think Science: Humor

What makes you laugh? And why is it funny? Do you guffaw when Moe hits Curly over the head with a wrench, or is the witty, urbane comedy of Woody Allen or Whit Stillman more your style? And is there anything universally funny?
