If you listen to a local NPR radio station like me, you’ve probably heard segments of Living on Earth with Steve Curwood, a program on the environment and environmental policy. After listening to this week’s show, I picked up on the fact that they broadcast from a studio in Davis Square, right down the hall from the office of the Somerville Journal, at 20 Holland Street Suite 408 to be exact.
Background from the Living on Earth website:
Living on Earth with Steve Curwood is the weekly environmental news and information program distributed by Public Radio International. Every week approximately 300 Public Radio stations broadcast Living on Earth’s news, features, interviews and commentary on a broad range of ecological issues. The show airs in 9 of the 10 top radio markets and reaches 80% of the US.
Local references to the show:
- Here’s a video interview of Steve Curwood by Somerville Journal reporter Steve Bagley.
- Here’s a link to Davis Square Live Journal for a post about how Go Green Davis Square was featured on the show on March 16th, 2008.
- LOE sponsored last year’s SomerGreen exhibition as announced in this City of Somerville press release on May 3, 2007 about the Annual City Cleanup.
Just think how many people around the country listen to the show each week and hear the reference to Somerville! That must be huge!
