Takoma Radio launched its youth media program URadio on August 21 with a week of orientation. This year-long afterschool program trains a dozen teenagers to record audio, conduct interviews, and produce radio pieces that will air on 94.3 FM.
During Ramp Up Week, URadio participants met one another and several station producers, listened to a variety of youth-produced pieces to ignite their creativity, and covered important introductory topics such as active listening and media literacy. Students also created station bumps, which are now broadcasting. Have you heard one?
Interested in joining URadio? We are still taking interested youth ages 14-19. Apply for a spot on our website by this Friday, September 8th.
