New Nevada radio program focuses on wildlife, the outdoors
The Nevada Department of Wildlife in partnership with KXNV 89.1, a Reno-based radio station, has announced the launch of a weekly radio program.
The hour-long program is designed “to take an in-depth look at issues impacting wildlife” and will also be available via podcast at http://www.nevadawild.org, according to an NDOW announcement. It features news, information and interviews with NDOW staff and guests about “matters related to hunting, fishing, boating, wildlife watching, species management, outdoor safety and a host of other topics.”
Teresa Moiola, co-host of the program and chief of NDOW’s Conservation Education Division, said the program is an important step in keeping the public informed about wildlife and outdoor issues.
“Nevadans really care about wildlife and outdoor recreation,” she said in a statement, “and this show provides detailed information they won’t find anywhere else.”
The Nevada Wild website has launched as part of the program so users can stream and download versions of it online. A blog featuring regular updates and information will also be available on the site.
According to an NDOW announcement, natural resource managers are looking for new ways to engage the public as technology changes.
“We are excited about our partnership with NDOW, one of our first public agencies to take advantage of this terrific tool to reach a wide audience in Western Nevada,” said Steve Funk, a KXNV community advisory board member. “We expect many more agencies, and even individuals, to offer programming that really reaches the community. This station is all about our community, our environment and the people who live here.”
New episodes will run every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on 89.1 FM. It will also repeat at various times throughout the week.
