Since 2003 Greg Jao has been the much beloved emcee of Urbana. With warmth and wit, Greg masterfully gives announcements for participants. This role is more than relaying important information; it is transitioning people out of one experience and into another. Often making announcements includes synthesizing and interpreting program content in a way that can be applied as people move forward. Greg does this all with aplomb, and in a way that places the information in the context of a larger vision. Here, Greg addresses Urbana 12 participants at the end of a morning session.
