Today we’re launching a new on-air program to help us reach out to more of our community groups and provide a platform for their work on the airwaves. We’re excited to announce Open Air will be airing every Wednesday at noon and will feature programming produced in partnership with local organizations working to improve the lives of people living in the Asheville area!
In the first episode, we’ll hear from the Racial Justice Coalition. It’s been really fun to conceptualize the series they had in mind, which they’ll use to launch a new podcast. RJC will produce a show once per month with us, and we can’t wait to learn about their work and hear from local artists, businesses, and organizers from Asheville’s Black community.
Open Air is intended not only to inform the community about work being done by local groups, but to help those groups develop broadcasting and audio production skills they can use going forward, and audio files they can use on their websites or to launch a podcast of their own! Open Air is produced by volunteers from the community as well and is a great way to learn audio production and radio skills.
If you or an organization you work with to improve the lives of Asheville neighbors would like to get involved, send an email to email@example.com
