Ask the Professor
One of the Longest Running Broadcast Shows in the U.S.
University of Detroit Mercy's quirky quiz show has been on the air since the 1950s.
Today, the show is moderated by Matthew J. Mio, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry. Ask the Professor is an unrehearsed show of questions and answers, where you, the audience, can try to stump the professors of University of Detroit Mercy. The program features University of Detroit Mercy faculty members from chemistry, communications, English, history, math and philosophy.
This panel of professors is challenged by listeners who send in questions about almost anything, in an attempt to stump the group. Communication Studies students help produce the successful radio program, and each show is recorded and available as a podcast from iTunes.
