Erica Sagon, Co-Host

Erica Sagon joins us after years writing for newspapers and magazines across the country. Erica launched her writing career as a reporter and editor for The Arizona Republic. Upon her return to Indiana, Erica helped launch Edible Indy Magazine, a publication that promotes local food, farms, and cuisine. In addition, she regularly contributes to the Indianapolis-based style magazine, Kit.

“Just when you think you know everything about life in Indiana, the Weekly Special is there to tell a story that is untold or out of the ordinary. I’m thrilled to go out and find those stories, the ones that make you proud and excited to be a Hoosier.”

Darryl Neher, Co-Host

Darryl Neher joins us after nearly 20 years on the radio and lecture circuit.  Darryl co-hosted WFHB’s The Sports Dawgs, and helped to launch WFHB’s Interchange, a public affairs talk show; his contributions earned two awards for excellence in broadcast journalism as granted by the Society of Professional Journalists.  In addition, Darryl hosted WGCL’s The Afternoon Edition from 2002 to 2009.

“I look forward to bringing the compelling, entertaining, and personal stories of the people, places, and things that make Indiana an exceptional place to live and visit. I know the Weekly Special will continue to be a creative and challenging experience.”
