Where Radio Is Real

Print

WRIR 97.3 FM, Richmond Independent Radio, Project ”Where Radio Is Real” addresses the lack of diversity of voices heard on Richmond’s public airwaves by giving the community themselves the tools and experience to share their own stories on the radio. WRIR show producers collaborated with local nonprofits that serve African-American youth, LGBTQ and teen girls to teach them the ins and out (and science!) of audio engineering, storytelling and sound art.
