Sprouts is a half-hour news magazine produced and broadcast by a growing list of community radio stations.
Our mission is to bring new voices to the airwaves, increase communication between this larger community of media producers of conscience, and encourage production collaboration across geographical distances via the Internet.
Every week Sprouts broadcasts stories from local communities with national significance. The features are produced independently, but are generally tied by a common theme. Recent shows have focused on the National Conference on Media Reform, the 2004 Election, and the history of Low Power FM.
We aim to bring unique voices from many individual parts of the country, joined together within the context of issues of national scope. We always welcome new members and provide support for to them via conference calls and other forms of communication. We seek diverse voices and viewpoints, new producers coming to the air, and the unique viewpoints from local areas.
Mondays, 10-10:30 am.
