WNIJ is pleased to be a part of the new live storytelling series at Conveyor in Rockford. This Friday, the theme is Independence Stories: storytellers will weave tales of events that triggered them to assert their individualism. Divorce, adulthood, quitting that terrible job… what sparked YOUR independence?
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.
Art. It inspires, sustains, entertains -- even makes us think. It's the way some people make a living. And its funding is all-too-often the first thing on the chopping block when times are tough. WNIJ's news department decided to take a look at how artists and organizations are adapting to economic and cultural changes.
