In memoriam: Geoff Nunberg
Fresh Air remembers its longtime language commentator, who died on August 11, 2020. He was 75-years-old.
Since his debut on Fresh Air in 1987, Geoff recorded hundreds of segments for the show, discussing how pop culture, technology, the business world, and politics keep changing our language, and the ways in which language evolves over time with each new generation. His "Word of the Year" selections were eagerly anticipated by Fresh Air staff and fans alike. This collection includes a small sampling of some of our favorite Geoff Nunberg segments from his many years on the show.
We miss Geoff enormously. He will always be a member of the Fresh Air family.
