We regularly broadcast content in 6 different languages (English, Spanish, Somali, Ojibwe, Hmong, and Haitian Creole); we share 12 hours of Native-led programming each week; and 83% of our hosts identify as Black, Indigenous, or POC. In the past year, we have aired over 300 hours of content created in partnership with local high school and middle school classrooms. We’ve helped over 100 of our neighbors launch weekly shows about health and wellness, race and identity, history, architecture, food systems, mental health, the education system, politics and community organizing, relationships, entrepreneurship, plus lots and lots of great music.
