Can public and community radio find ways to innovate with podcasting, and reach new audiences, rather than mostly repackage what’s on air? Ernesto Aguilar, program director of Pacifica station KPFT-FM in Houston, joins to tackle that question.
Our college radio correspondent Jennifer Waits joins as third co-host to run down our radio news headlines, and then she tells us about a high school letting go of one of the last stations at 87.9FM, and lets us know about two interesting college radio documentaries. In the Lasar’s Radio Letter segment, Matthew gives another update on plans for Santa Cruz community station KUSP to avoid a fire sale to the Classical Public Radio Network.
