Dr. Porter has been studying and teaching religion at Illinois College since 2000. He enjoys bicycling, scuba diving, and sailing. Traveling, especially to ancient archaeological sites, is another passion. He also keeps bees as a hobby. Dr. Porter appreciates NPR for bringing the world to his ears.

The NPR Illinois Community Advisory Board (CAB) met in Chicago and connected by videoconference to Springfield. The primary purposes of the meeting were to welcome new advisory board members who begin their new terms on July 1, 2018 and to provide input about whether NPR Illinois’ programming and policies meet the specialized educational and cultural needs of the community it serves.
