Germantown Radio is Looking for Youth Journalists


GTown Radio is looking for young people 12 to 17 years old interested in journalism - fact and opinion - to help create radio talk show programs. Participants will learn how to choose topics for discussion, conduct interviews with guests, add commentary and create broadcast-ready programs on environment, culture and other topics of interest.


The team meets at Germantown Life Enrichment Center on Saturdays. There is no fee to participate, but donations are welcome. For details, please email PNN Steering Committee member Conni Billé  or call at 215-285-8136.
