A brief Bio of the moderator Mike McIntyre.  He is the host of The Sound of Ideas® on 90.3 WCPN.   McIntyre grew up in Cleveland throwing copies of The Plain Dealer to customers on his father’s circulation route.  He joined the newspaper ten years later in a different capacity, as a metro reporter.  Since 1990, McIntyre – a 1987 graduate of Bowling Green State University with a B.S. in Journalism – has covered government, transportation, crime and the environment for the newspaper. He was a staff writer for The Plain Dealer Sunday Magazine until it was shuttered in 2005.  Since 2002, he has written “Tipoff,” a twice-weekly metro column of assorted off-beat news items. The column won the 2010 Herb Caen Memorial Award from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.
