RadioActive is the youth media program at KUOW where youth delight in discovering public radio journalism. RadioActive supports young people’s growth as media makers by sharing access to public radio’s knowledge, skills and institutions.
RadioActive is proud to offer intensive and fun introductory radio journalism workshops for 16-18 year olds throughout the year. All RadioActive workshops are free, and participants receive stipends for their completed work. Apply for our next workshop: PDF | Word | Google
The RadioActive summer session meets daily at KUOW’s studios. Students learn about journalism, audio recording, audio editing, interviewing, writing for broadcast and speaking on the air. They create stories on the topic of their choice and host the RadioActive podcast.
If the summer workshop isn’t the right fit for you, we also offer an after-school session in the fall and spring, in partnership with community organizations around the Seattle area.
Graduates of intro RadioActive workshops stay involved as advanced producers. They host and produce the monthly RadioActive podcast.
