What you will hear on The Allegheny Front
Welcome to The Allegheny Front
The Allegheny Front is a half hour weekly radio program that explores environmental issues affecting the community through stories, interviews, news and commentaries. We’ve been on the air in Pittsburgh for over 20 years. We now air throughout Pennsylvania on many college and public radio stations.
Our mission is to educate the public to become environmentally literate and understand the issues facing their own communities. By focusing on local and regional environmental news and stories, we hope that people will begin to connect to their own communities and become part of the civic dialoge on these issues.
Tune in and you can hear such stories as gas drilling in the Marcellus shale, how artists have created a tribute to animals lost in the ecological disaster at Dunkard Creek, or how the air in Pittsburgh compares to the rest of the country. We interview interesting people from climate scientists to naturalists to everyday folks.
Where to Hear The Allegheny Front
Listeners can catch the program on Essental Public Radio, 90.5 FM in Pittsburgh Saturday mornings at 7:30. The program airs throughout the region on many other stations. Check out our website to find out how to listen in your area and access all of our stories: http://www.alleghenyfront.org
