    ‘Fresh Air’ host Terry Gross goes from radio to TV in tonight’s appearance on ‘Colbert Report’

    He’s hugged our Ben Franklin impersonator and interviewed our mayor. Tonight, Stephen Colbert meets his interviewing match when WHYY’s Terry Gross joins him at his desk in New York for the “Colbert Report.

    The two have talked many times, but always with Terry as host of “Fresh Air.” She gets the tables turned on her at 11:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.

    Tonight the two will look back at some of Terry’s most memorable interviews — good and bad — and just maybe we’ll find out once and for all who the better interviewer is.

    Based on Nutter’s 2008 interview, we have two pieces of advice for Terry: avoid telling Colbert, “You’re absolutely wrong,” and if you must tell him he’s wrong, at least have the decency to do it while wearing a “WristStrong” wristband.

    If you could interview Terry Gross, what would you ask her?
