|Next “Montgomery Mosaic” Radio Show on WOL 1450 AM to Feature Director of Office of Human Rights|
The featured guest on the County’s next “Montgomery Mosaic” radio show on WOL-Radio 1450 AM will be James Stowe, director of Montgomery County’s Office of Human Rights, who will talk about the 2014 Human Rights Hall of Fame, the annual Civil Rights Educational Freedom Tour, the annual Human Rights camp and the bullying symposiums held every year by the County. The County’s Office of Human Rights was established in 1960 to help avoid and conciliate intergroup friction and to enforce human rights laws.
The show, which will air live on Wednesday, July 16, from 10:30 – 11 a.m., is co-hosted by Deborah Milo, host of the County’s “Mosaic” cable television show, and WOL-Radio’s Ron Thompson.
The half-hour monthly radio show was launched in October 2013 to extend the reach of the County’s cable show, “Mosaic: An African-American Perspective” to a broader audience. The series airs live on the third Wednesday of each month, providing interviews with local elected officials and community leaders about topics of interest to the African American community. Since January, the show has featured guests that include County Council President Craig Rice, African American Health Initiative Program Manager Heather Ross, County Executive Ike Leggett and Montgomery County Police Assistant Chief Darryl McSwain.
Although the cable and radio shows include different guests and topics, they are aligned to provide 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. It is also streamed live on http://WOLDCnews.com, and archived shows can be found on http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/exec/media/Mosaic.html.
