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, July 1: Elizabeth Riggs, Deputy Director of the Huron River Watershed Council, will discuss the Clean Water Rule and how in might shape better water protection polices in our region.
- Wednesday, July 8: Mark Torregrossa, Chief Meteorologist for MLive Media Group, will discuss the effects of hurricane remnants and patterns on the weather and environment in southeast Michigan.
The Green Room
Monthly radio show that airs the last Friday of each month at 6:50am and 8:50am.
- Friday, June 26: Baby's First Year
Over four new babies are born every second on Earth. Even though they are tiny, their environmental impacts add up. We frequently hear debates about which diapers, bottles, or toys are greenest. But some of the connections between babies and the environment are less often discussed. In this installment of WEMU’s “The Green Room,” Barbara Lucas explores the lesser-known environmental footprints of our smallest citizens.
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!
