I asked on Twitter the other day if there would there be community interest in a regular show on the college radio station talking with residents about what’s going on in town.
Because for all that I live in town, I don’t work in town. As such, I could tell you more about politics in Avon Lake than I could about Oberlin City Council. There are others like me out there, and local radio seems like a natural way to reach people who might want to know more about what’s going on in town.
(The Internet is the same way, of course. So I blog and think of podcasting in addition to, or instead of the, radio. There are the newspapers in town as well, meaning the Oberlin News Tribune and the college publications to the extent they cover town issues.)
Oberlin City Manager Eric Norenberg tweeted in response that he “would be happy to participate periodically on a radio show talking about what’s going on in town. I would like to help.”
