Did you know Seattle has seven new, hyper-local radio stations to serve individual communities and voices that may not always be heard?
Many people braved a drizzly Thursday on August 20, 2015 for National Radio Day. It was a celebration of seven stations that are either on the air in Seattle or soon will be. It’s estimated that 90 percent of Seattle neighborhoods will be in the broadcast area of at least one of the new stations, and that many areas will be able to tune in to two or more.
These stations give students a chance to find their voices, learn about storytelling and present content that may not be heard anywhere else.
Programs represented included Rainier Valley Radio, Hollow Earth Radio, KSPU and more.
