"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, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry. The program features University of Detroit Mercy faculty members from chemistry, communications, English, history, math, philosophy and sociology.

This panel of professors is challenged by listeners who send in questions about nearly everything, in an attempt to stump the group. Communications Studies students help produce the successful radio program, and each show is recorded and available as a podcast from iTunes.
