DCRadio.gov Launches New "Hearing the Council" Feature

“Hearing the Council” is the latest way to learn about what is happening with the Council of the District of Columbia. The new half-hour program on DCRadio—96.3 HD4 and DCRadio.gov—will feature councilmember interviews and discussions of important public policy issues every day from 3:00-3:30 pm.

The council's Director of Communications Josh Gibson will do the interviewing. Two members of council will be interviewed every other week. The program kicked off with Ward 1 CM Brianne Nadeau Monday, February 19 and will feature the Ward 7 CM today, February 20.

In addition, the council is adding 1-3 minute "in their own words" segments to the lineup. These will feature each councilmember and will be run in between other shows throughout the week. This will roll out soon.

Not heard of DCRadio? This is what Gibson has to say about it:

In 2014, the District government established a partnership with Howard University’s WHUR to create a government radio station. On September 19, 2017, D.C. Government made history by launching DCRadio 96.3 HD4: the radio station is the first government-owned radio station in the District and the second municipally-owned full power radio station in the country. 

The “Hearing the Council” show is among 1,300 hours of original programming on the radio station, managed by the District’s Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment (OCTFME).  DCRadio 96.3 HD4 enhances the quality-of-life for District residents by broadcasting vital information, sharing programming on emergency and non-emergency services and alerts, providing community and other government affairs programming. In addition, the radio station provides a media literacy training platform for D.C. residents and students. Both DCRadio 96.3 HD4 and DCRadio.gov are additional resources for our open and transparent government.
