When English professor Don Noble was asked by the University of Alabama Center for Public Television & Radio in 1988 to host a series of interviews with writers, he agreed without hesitation.

I thought the program would give me an opportunity to meet these people I’d been reading and studying." Since venturing into broadcasting Noble has hosted over 100 half-hour shows featuring interviews with writers including literary "stars" such as James Dickey, John Barth, Peter Taylor, Ray Bradbury, Shirley Ann Grau, and Anne Rivers Siddons.
