Earthbeat Radio Covers the Environment the Way Corporate Media Won't
April 22, 2011 · Contributors include Daphne Wysham.
Earthbeat Radio is filling a gap with continuing independent coverage of the climate change crisis. During the National Conference for Media Reform, we sat down with Free Speech TV to talk about our work.
During the National Conference for Media Reform, Antoinette June of Free Speech TV interviewed Daphne Wysham, a fellow and trustee at the Institute for Policy Studies.
Wysham spoke about the work of her public media initiative, Earthbeat Radio. Wysham, who also co-directs the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network, has led Earthbeat to its current level of prominence on more than 60 public radio stations across the nation. As corporate-owned media has shied away from covering the climate change crisis and the dangers of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, Earthbeat aims to fill the gap and keep Americans informed.
