NPR's new President and CEO Jarl Mohn started his career in radio as a disc jockey under the name Lee Masters. He became a top executive at MTV and VH1, and helped found the E! Entertainment Network. Mohn says listeners need not worry about NPR's public radio mission changing -- but he says he'll bring his commercial media expertise to shore up the organization's finances. Mohn joins us to discuss his vision for the future of NPR.
