In this fun, rigorous and
hands-on workshop, youth ages 16-18 learn about journalism, audio recording,
audio editing, interviewing, writing for broadcast, and speaking on the air.
During the workshop, the six participants will work collaboratively to
create feature radio
stories on topics of their choice that will be published on KUOW.org and shared at a public listening
party! Best of all, RadioActive participants have the chance to amplify their
voices by telling true stories about their communities, and the topics that are
important to them.
