EarthSky radio now heard in New York City via WFDU-FM 89.1

Tune in every day at 8:20 AM, 11:20 AM, or 2:20 PM.

The science radio series Earth & Sky today announced a new affiliate partnership with WFDU 89.1 FM, broadcasting throughout the New York City tri-state metropolitan area from Farleigh Dickinson University. Beginning this month, Earth & Sky can be heard on this station daily at 8:20 AM, 11:20 AM, and 2:20 PM.

WFDU Program Director Barry Sheffield said, ‘Since 1971, WFDU FM has provided distinctive entertainment shows and prize-winning public affairs programming for the tri-state metro area. Not only is Earth & Sky distinctive and prize-winning, it’s hopeful. It just fits with the WFDU model, and we’re pleased to add it to the schedule.’

Earth & Sky was established in 1991 and is known to millions around the world. Its 90- and 60- second daily radio spots offer positive, hopeful messages about science, nature, and people in the 21st century.

Earth & Sky – whose goal is to be a clear voice for science – has more than 500 scientists working with it as science advisors. In 2003, the National Science Board – advisors to the U.S. President and Congress – awarded Earth & Sky its prestigious public service award for ‘its achievements in broadcasting explanations of research and every day science to a worldwide audience.’ Earth & Sky was the first radio program to ever receive this award.
