Episode 13: Stepping Into Life Through Radio
Marc is joined by Temitayo Fagbenle, an award-winning Rookie Reporter, and Kaari Pitkin, Senior Producer for WNYC. Radio Rookies is the product of veteran radio producers, Marianne McCune and Kaari Pitkin, who have shepherded hundreds of youth in NYC schools through their first experiences as young reporters and storytellers. Youth-led stories have garnered numerous prestigious journalism awards and accolades. Young reporters like Temi cover big and sometimes thorny topics--drugs, race, sexual abuse, immigration--that emerge from the center of their own lives. Learn about the impacts of this experience from Temi firsthand, and peak under the hood of this unique production-centered learning experience to understand how stories get made.
