Radio Shows on 89.1FM WEMU
Public Health's Environmental Health Division helps to produce two radio shows in collaboration with WEMU News. Tune in to hear about environmental issues impacting Washtenaw County!
Issues of the Environment
Weekly radio show that airs each Wednesday at 8:20am.
- Wednesday, September 17: Kevin Kononenko, developer of Vivergy, will be discussing the web platform he developed to help people track their personal contribution to air pollution and how the University of Michigan's programs helped him to found his own environmental business while still finishing his degree.
- Wednesday, September 24: Lisa Dusseau, a member of the Ann Arbor Northeast Alliance, will be discussing the group's opposition to a large, dense Toll Brothers housing development planned for Northeast Ann Arbor near Nixon Road. The site contains wetlands and already has substantial traffic backups during peak hours.
The Green Room
Monthly radio show that airs the last Friday of each month at 6:50am and 8:20am.
- Friday, August 29: Flow and bottlenecks - Recreation on the Huron
The August episode of the “Green Room” on WEMU public radio explores the environmental and economic ramifications of the growing popularity of the Huron River as a premiere leisure destination.
- Friday, September 26: The Return of the Osprey - A Southeast Michigan Success Story
Decimated by DDT, ospreys were nearly absent in our area fifty years ago. Now, thanks to an ambitious reintroduction and satellite transmitter program, we can all track the nesting and migration of these magnificent raptors.
Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment and The Green Room pages. For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias.
