IU School of Journalism

August 1, 2007

During August, WFHB Community Radio (98.1 and 91.3 FM) will air four special programs that take an in-depth look at some of the biggest issues facing Bloomington and the surrounding area.

"At the Mic: Bloomington Close-Up" will run on Thursdays at 11 a.m. and explore the issues of homelessness and hunger, prison overcrowding and rehabilitation, outsourcing and health care and insurance.

For several months, students in the IU School of Journalism's Community Journalism Seminar researched and reported on these topics, with help from WFHB's news and public affairs department.

"These are things that really do affect our community in a big way," said Elle Lissitzyn, an IU student and the program's co-producer. "They aren't issues that make daily headlines."
