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, January 28: Jamie Kidwell-Brix will discuss Ann Arbor's new green rental initiatives and how they relate to the city's Climate Action Plan goals.
- Wednesday, February 4: Ric Lawson, Watershed Planner for the Huron River Watershed Council (HRWC), will discuss HRWC's funding for a green infrastructure project that will help an Ann Arbor neighborhood in the Packard/Platt area manage its urban stormwater runoff.
The Green Room
Monthly radio show that airs the last Friday of each month at 6:50am and 8:50am.
- Friday, December 26: Locals Go Solar
Michigan gets more sun than Germany, the world leader in solar installations. Whether it’s to prevent climate change, to increase energy independence, or both, solar energy can help us work towards these goals. In this installment of WEMU’s “The Green Room,” Barbara Lucas looks at how, and why, local folks are “going solar.”
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.
Thanks for listening!
