AUGUST STAFF SPOTLIGHT
Fans of KBOO already know about “From the Grassroots,” a radio show hosted by Ms. Lanita Duke, one of our After Hours Specialist. Earlier this year, she was awarded the West Coast Hometown Media Award for Audio Programming/Independent Producer. Two radio segments are also finalists in the East Coast-based Public Media Awards of Excellence. And most recently the show was named a Bronze winner in the 2019 Summit Creative Award competition. The show agitates for social change using music, commentary, satire and analysis to provoke thought and discussion. It’s broadcast live every first and third Fridays from 8-10pm, and also available as a podcast.
