Montgomery County’s Office of Public Information is launching a new radio show on WOL-Radio 1450 AM. Starting October 16, the monthly, half-hour “Montgomery Mosaic” show will air live from 10:30 – 11 a.m. on the third Wednesday of each month.

The new show will involve interviews with local elected officials and community leaders about topics of interest to the African American community. Upcoming discussions will cover topics such as the County’s African American Health Initiative; joint concerns with neighboring jurisdictions; the achievement gap in schools; public safety recruitments; local educational programs and seminars; careers in law and medicine; and creating jobs and supporting business. The show will be co-hosted by Deborah Milo, host of the County’s “Mosaic” cable show, and WOL-Radio’s Ron Thompson.
The “Montgomery Mosaic” radio show extends the reach of the County’s cable show, “Mosaic: An African-American Perspective” to a broader audience. Although the two shows will include different guests and topics, they will be aligned in providing better communications with the County’s African American community. The cable show can be found on the Montgomery County government access channel, County Cable Montgomery (Channel 30 on the Verizon cable system, and Channel 6 on RCN and Comcast). Episodes are available for viewing on demand at http://montgomerycountymd.gov/CCM/mosaic.html.
“Montgomery Mosaic” will be broadcast from the Radio One studios at 8515 Georgia Avenue in downtown Silver Spring. The show will also be streamed live on http://WOLDCnews.com.
