There's More To The Story

Mar 28, 2014


Make plan's to join WNIJ this Sunday night at 6pm, at 89.5 FM or on the web, for Free Range Radio as we unveil another episode of Reveal,  a production of The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX.

As its website states, Reveal is for anyone interested in stories that break news and change our understanding of how the world works - examining what governments, businesses and communities are doing behind the scenes, hidden from public view.

  • In Sunday's episode, a  look at the solitary confinement of teens, many of whom are unconvicted, at Rikers Island in NYC.

  • This week's episode  will also ask, "Where is all that heroin in the Midwest coming from?" WBEZ-Chicago and The Chicago Reader trace a path from Ciudad Juarez to Chicago and beyond. 
  • The Reveal team digs deeper into claims that say, "No animals were harmed in the production of this film."  Sure of that? 
  • And finally,  a female farmworker talks about how her life has changed since she spoke out about sexual abuse in the fields.

WNIJ's Free Range Radio is a place for great public radio programs that are not easily categorized. It's a collection of nationally-syndicated and locally-produced documentaries, features and music specials which otherwise might not find a home on our regular program schedule.

Tune in this Sunday for Reveal and every Sunday at 6pm to  hear something new every week!
