Cordelia Okpei is a public broadcasting producer and host in Nigeria, presently visiting friends here in Fort Wayne.
A recent exploration of our city's assets and opportunities led Okpei directly to the Allen County Public Library, and that led to an offer from the WELT radio team of her own show.
Happy to oblige, Okpei has dubbed it Deliaz Cafe, and it airs Fridays at noon, with encores Sunday evenings at six o'clock.
And when she returns home to Nigeria, she plans to continue the show remotely.
Meanwhile, when an unannounced visit to our station brought her together with WBOI's Julia Meek last month, Cordelia was invited back in to "talk shop" in the studio about her insatiable passion for storytelling, and the adventures that craft has afforded her.
