NPR...CBS...The Cooking Channel.... A Discussion With Mo Rocca On His Multiple Professional Hats

Jamie Heuer

Earlier this month, host Steve Potter caught up with Mo Rocca while he was in St. Louis working on a story for  "CBS Sunday Morning." Their discussion was ostensibly on how Rocca juggles his three professional roles, but in reality the topics covered were even more numerous than the many hats Mo Rocca wears.

Among the topics discussed were:

  • New York's Cronut craze
  • Rocca's previous work with the Daily Show and the 1990s PBS  show "Wishbone"
  • The accuracy or inaccuracy of several quotes attributed to him
  • The inspiration for his cooking show
  • Why he is wary of being called a gay rights advocate

Cityscape is produced by Mary Edwards and Alex Heuer, hosted by Steve Potter and funded in part by the the Arts and Education Council of Greater St. Louis, the Regional Arts Commission and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
