Hudson Mohawk Magazine

Earlier this fall we launched a local news and public affairs show on WOOC 105.3 FM broadcast live Monday through Friday from 6-7 p.m., and repeated at 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. the following weekday.

The Hudson Mohawk Magazine is a locally-produced news hour that provides sanctuary for the discussion of a wide range of ideas, to advance our mission of using art and participatory action to promote social and environmental justice and freedom of expression.

This is an all-volunteer effort – let us know if you’d like to join in!

If you’re interested in volunteering, please email volunteer@mediasanctuary.org or call (518)-272-2390.

A call out to community educators & organizers! If you want to help by creating a segment for the show about topical issues, or by having your students work on the show to discuss their education, please let us know! As a radio producer for WOOC I can help you to produce content and get your perspective out into the Capital Region. Use WOOC as a vehicle to spread the word on the important work you do.”
