THE BARBERSHOP SHOW HOSTED BY RICHARD STEELE TO BE REBROADCAST ON SUNDAY AFTERNOONS ON WBEZ 91.5FM

image

The Barbershop Show, which airs live on Fridays at noon from Carter’s Barber Shop in North Lawndale, will be rebroadcast on our sister station, WBEZ 91.5fm, Sundays at 3pm starting April 6.   Hosted by veteran WBEZ personality Richard Steele, the Barbershop Show  has aired live on  Vocalo (WBEW) 89.5fm & 90.7fm and Vocalo.org, and has been produced in partnership with The Chicago Reporter, since the fall of 2010. With his legendary conversational skills and knowledge of Chicago’s diverse communities, each week Steele moderates a dialogue about issues that impact our community, joined by journalists, activists, academics, and regular people alike.  

The Barbershop Show is produced by Ayana Contreras, and is available as a free podcast in the WBEZ iTunes store.

 “With the rebroadcast of ‘The Barber Shop Show’ on WBEZ, the relationship between the sister stations- Vocalo and WBEZ – continues to grow.  There is an abundance of talent in the Chicago Public Media pool, and it’s great when reporters, personalities and producers are able to share their experience with listeners at both institutions. Richard certainly embodies this spirit – he’s been on-air and behind the scenes at WBEZ for more than 25 years and brings such gravitas to Vocalo and its distinct neighborhood focus,” said Silvia Rivera, Vocalo Managing Director.

CNN Chicagoland: How one High School Principal is Sharing her School's Reality
112 plays

morningamp:

I think my main reason for wanting to do it [CNN Chicagoland documentary] was to create awareness, but not just for Fenger- I think Fenger is just a small microcosm of what happens on a larger scale of not only in Chicago but across this country. And so there are phenomenal educators and principles across the country who are doing work under extraordinary circumstances that don’t really get highlighted, where people don’t understand the complexity of the work, so that was really important for me and why I really wanted to do it. And then the second reason was to help raise funds. You know, it’s public education…and how things are funded; it’s complicated. “

- Fenger High School Principal Liz Dozier on why she decided to feature her school on CNN’s documentary “Chicagoland”

Liz Dozier, principal of Fenger High School, joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to talk about her starring turn on CNN’s Chicagoland and what her day to day is like when she’s not on national TV. We’ve also been talking about guns following yesterday’s shooting at Fort Hood so we’ll look at the ways daily violence affects out lives.
