Radio listeners across the country will soon get a daily introduction to the Earth and space sciences when a new syndicated radio program, “Earth and Sky,” debuts this fall. Produced by Deborah Byrd and Joel Block of Austin, Texas, the creative team behind the long-running “Star Date” radio program, “Earth and Sky” premieres on September 30. The program is being produced in association with the American Geophysical Union.
“‘Earth and Sky’ is a new vehicle for the dissemination of accurate and up-to-date information on Earth and space sciences,” says AGU Executive Director Fred Spilhaus. “It has tremendous potential to advance one of AGU's fundamental missions: to make the results of scientific research available to the public.”
