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, December 17: Laura Rubin, Executive Director of the Huron River Watershed Council, will be discussing coal tar sealants, and Michigan’s push to ban them. Coal tar sealants on driveways and pavement contaminate waterways by leaching carcinogenic chemicals.
- Wednesday, December 24: Christine Chessler-Stull, Recycle Ann Arbor’s Outreach & Zero Waste Coordinator, will be discussing holiday waste reduction and explaining how these services are available to all residents of Washtenaw County, not just Ann Arbor.
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.
