Audra update: new host of ‘Live from Lincoln Center’

How impressive is this? Fresno favorite Audra McDonald is the new host of PBS’ “Live From Lincoln Center.” From today’s Associated Press article:

McDonald will emcee seven broadcasts from December through spring 2013, starting Dec. 13 with “The Richard Tucker Opera Gala” and Dec. 31 with the New York Philharmonic’s New Year’s Eve gala … ”I remember watching Beverly Sills broadcasting from the Met (the center’s Metropolitan Opera House) on my PBS channel at my home in Fresno,” McDonald said, adding that she was amazed at the venue’s size and “inspired by the music.”

“Live From Lincoln Center” is in its 37th broadcast season.
