HMM Community Radio Day

June 3 @ 3:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Community Radio Days take place on the first Monday of every month, bringing interested and producing correspondents together to discuss grassroots news, story ideas, share experiences, and create community. Hudson Mohawk Magazine is for everyone. Drop by to see what it’s all about.

Hudson Mohawk Magazine (HMM) is a volunteer-produced, local news hour that provides sanctuary for the discussion of topics affecting our communities. Our program builds community in Troy and the surrounding Capital Region through broad grassroots participation.

3:00pm: Doors open. Producers come in and work on projects in our computer lab. We offer light beverages and snacks.
4:30pm: Established producers and newcomers gather around the conference table to discuss HMM and how we do what we do. Discussions often have a theme such as interview tactics, outreach, editing, structuring a story, etc.
6:00pm: See a live recording of HMM. Hear the variety of stories on our program in real time, and see how hosts and engineers in action.
7:07pm: Join our weekly programming meeting where producers come together to program the week ahead. Meet our team, and share your ideas for for stories.
