Weekly Environmental Radio Program on WILL AM,
``Living on Earth''

February, 2005
by Dick Bishop

Goal:

To increase listeners' awareness of their regional environment, to inform them about issues concerning the local environment, and to fill gap in local environmental information left by national programs, such as "Living on Earth." Tune in on WILL-AM, Saturdays, 7 pm.

The Environmental Almanac is broadcast twice every Thursday at 4:45 pm and 6:45 pm on WILL AM. It features the writing of a member of the UIUC Department of English, Rob Kanter, using material he gathers with the assistance of local environmentalists. A modest stipend for his work has been provided from donations collected by several organizations, including the Prairie Group. His latest presentation can always be seen and heard using the following Web page, which includes links to an archive of his previous talks.
