New County Council President Craig Rice will be the featured guest on the County’s next “Montgomery Mosaic” radio show on WOL-Radio 1450 AM. The show will air on Wednesday, January 15, from 10:30 – 11 a.m. Rice serves on the Council’s Education (ED) and Health and Human Services (HHS) committees. He is also the HHS Committee Lead for Montgomery County Public Libraries.
The half-hour monthly radio show was launched on October 16 with County Executive Isiah Leggett. The second show on November 20 featured previous County Council President Nancy Navarro. The series will continue to air live on the third Wednesday of each month from 10:30 – 11 a.m., providing 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 is co-hosted by Deborah Milo, host of the County’s “Mosaic” cable television 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 include different guests and topics, they are 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). Cable show episodes are available for viewing on demand at http://montgomerycountymd.gov/CCM/mosaic.html.
The radio show is broadcast from the Radio One studios at 8515 Georgia Avenue in downtown Silver Spring. The show is also streamed live on http://WOLDCnews.com, and archived shows can be found on http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/exec/media/Mosaic.html.
