‘People don’t stay where they don’t feel safe’: Public radio leaders address diversity in the industryBy Tyler Falk, Reporter
Amid the Black Lives Matter protests, public radio stations have posted statements condemning racism and laying out their commitments to diversity. Meanwhile, people of color in public media have been sharing stories, especially on social media, about their experiences of racism and toxic workplaces in the industry. As Current Executive Director Julie Drizin pointed out, “public media has a whiteness problem,” and “the vast majority of our stations and organizations fail to adequately reflect their communities or the country.” In a webinar Tuesday, Ju-Don Marshall, chief content officer at WFAE in Charlotte, N.C., and Jordan Lee, program director at Radio Milwaukee, discussed their experiences as people of color in public radio and how their stations are addressing diversity and inclusion. WFAE’s leadership has been focusing both internally and externally on issues of diversity and inclusion.
