WDUN talk show host Ken Coleman releases new book

By Staff
UNDATED - Professional interviewer, radio talk show host, and new voice to the WDUN afternoon line-up, Ken Coleman has a new book to talk about with the April 2 release of "One Question, Life-Changing Answers from Today's Leading Voices" from Simon and Schuster. The release comes just two months after Coleman was tapped to host an afternoon drive position on WDUN AM and FM, Monday through Friday from 5-7 p.m.

The book chronicles a series of answers from leading voices Coleman interviewed such as Mark Burnett, Zach McLeroy, Grant Teaff, Ed Bastian, Coach Mike Krzyzewski and many others.

Coleman says the premise on all of the interviews begins with this question:

"If you could sit down with the people you most admire and ask just one question, what would you ask? What is Coach Tony Dungy's advice for achieving success while maintaining integrity? What advice does Malcolm Gladwell give parents about instilling a work ethic in our children? How does President Jimmy Carter suggest we continue forward and reinvent ourselves in new seasons?"

Coleman chronicles his interviews and the answers to these questions in "One Question."

"I am honored that Simon and Schuster gave me the opportunity to share my head and heart in this book. My passion is to help people find their sweet spot and this book will further that passion," Coleman said.

Coach K, the head coach for Duke University men's basketball team was interviewed by Coleman and said, "The simplicity of a singular question can hold great power to inform and inspire. Ken Coleman has asked great questions throughout his career. He is as good an interviewer as there is in this country. In 'One Question' he gives us invaluable answers to the questions we all ask."

President of Delta Airlines Ed Bastian said, "Ken Coleman allows us to eavesdrop on his insightful questions with many of the brightest and most respected minds in our world. 'One Question' is a delightful, inspiring mandate to never stop asking."

Jay Jacobs, President and Owner of Jacobs Media Corporation, parent company of WDUN AM/FM said, "We are proud to have Ken Coleman on our airwaves and are thrilled with the response to his afternoon show. He has proven himself to be a rising star in radio and with this book launch, he elevates his type of conversation to a whole new level. The book is an inspiring read from Ken's conversations with well-known leaders, and he extracts just the right answers with his discerning questions."
