Neal Conan is best known as host for National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation and as an executive producer of All Things Considered. But this summer he stood in as the play-by-play announcer of the Cape Cod Baseball League's All-Star Game. Conan is author Play-by-Play: Baseball, Radio and Life in the Last Chance League, a book about his experience taking a leave from NPR to serve as a broadcaster in the independent Atlantic League. Conan was interviewed recently by Dan Tritle of WCAI, CodBall's radio partner. I was also interviewed on the broadcast, but let's face it, an NPR broadcaster is a whole lot more interesting than me!
