Ira Wood


Ira Wood is the host of a weekly interview program called The Lowdown. For over five years the show has covered national and local trends.

Interviewing authors, politicians, and scientists, as well as cops, junkies, farmers, and comedians, has enabled him to indulge a lifelong compulsion to pester people with questions. His guests have included the famous and infamous, but rarely the vapid. In his experience, there are no boring guests or subjects, only unprepared and self-indulgent interviewers. His 5-minute essays, which he calls ‘Rooneys’ in homage to the American radio and television writer Andy Rooney, air most Fridays at the end of the station’s weekly news magazine.

Ira currently serves as the President of the WOMR Board of Directors. Plaudits and complaints about the station will be cheerfully received:
