WYPR - More Than Words

 http://www.wypr.org/programs/more-words

 

In a partnership with, Jonna McKone and Jamyla Krempel students in the Recording Arts, Media and Production (RAMP) program learned about radio journalism and how storytelling has the power to shift perspectives about issues confronting communities of color. Deneira, Miles, Chanel and Xavier produced several episodes. The show is edited and directed by WYPR's education reporter, Jonna McKone, Jamyla Krempel, and the station's digital producer.

More Than Words was a collaborative youth media group, radio project and podcast produced reported by FDHS RAMP students. These stories were based upon the students perspective, insight and sensitivity about their city, school, the issues and concerns they face, and the many assets and triumphs happening everyday in their neighborhoods, schools, and families. The show handed over the microphone to youth so they could report and tell the personal stories they felt journalists sometimes neglected or got wrong.

 

More Than Words is supported by a generous grant from the Philip and Beryl Sachs Family Foundation
