  • 0

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-- The new Tom Hanks film "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" has Oscar buzz for the actor as he portrays Pittsburgh icon Fred Rogers in the movie. 

But the movie also has local people buzzing with their memories about the children's show host.  

Todd Cole is one of those people.  He was a friend of Rogers and he has saved over 100 letters from the television legend. 

Cole's also a Westminster alumnus (1985) who teaches part-time at the School of Education. On this edition of Titan Radio's "Roundtable" program, Cole gives us an inside look at Fred Rogers and the new movie.

He also recommends some books you should read.  Some are about him and some are by him.

"Roundtable" is a public/community service program produced for Titan Radio/WWNW-FM.
