Nick is a popular commentator regularly featured on Minnesota Public Radio (MPR), the daily public affairs program Midday, on issues ranging from political turmoil in post-communist Europe to the war in Iraq. He has appeared on News Hour with Jim Lehrer and Religion and Ethics Newsweekly and given radio commentaries for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered and Public Radio International’s Marketplace.

“Nick is a Minnesota treasure, the media’s go-to guy for history and current events. Yes, Nick is a top flight scholar which gives him rock solid credibility, but he is also a great storyteller, with the ability to explain complex issues in an understandable, interesting way. He is personable, witty, a terrific writer, and always willing to share what he’s learned. He is, in the truest sense, a public intellectual; a great ambassador for CSB/SJU.” ~Gary Eichten, MPR
