Terry Gross (1951-) is the host and co-executive producer of Fresh Air, her US interview show on National Public Radio. She has received a number of awards for the show, including the prestigious Peabody Award in 1994 for its "probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insight." Gross is married to her second husband and they live in Philadelphia. They have no children.
Terry Gross and Marc Maron took the stage at WNYC's RadioLoveFest on May 6. During their conversation, Gross says, Maron "occasionally looked a little nervous or frustrated when he thought I was unforthcoming — or worse yet, being dull -- but mostly, he looked emotionally present, curious and attentive."
Terry Gross To Marc Maron: 'Life Is Harder Than Radio'
My 1st go-to conversation when I feel nervous about an upcoming Azzbda guest. 2 of my favorite interviewers talk to each other and... Kinda interview each other. The art of convo! ---- The WTF host asks the Fresh Air host about her childhood, her start in radio and her record-strewn apartment. Gross says Maron's "no bulls***" style made her feel comfortable opening up.
