Diane Rehm is one of NPR’s beloved signature personalities. Like many women of her generation, the 73-year-old Rehm began her career late, as a volunteer at public-radio station WAMU-FM in her hometown of Washington D.C. when she was pushing 40. She’s made up for lost time. She’s been a radio host since 1979 and, since 1984, has helmed The Diane Rehm Show, a two-hour, five-days-a-week forum that features in-depth discussions on topics of current interests and prominent guests, including authors, politicians and journalists. She recently discussed the state of the U.S. military, childhood obesity, the Iraqi election and 21st-century earthquakes. Over the years, she’s interviewed Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Ralph Nader, Newt Gingrich and Mr. Rogers, among others. Rehm will speak at 7:30 p.m. at E.J. Thomas Hall (198 Hill St., Akron, 330.972.7570, uaevents.com). General admission tickets are $8. — Anastasia Pantsios
