PEACE TALKS: A new breed of talk radio

Peace Talks radioSince January 2003, NPR station KUNM, 89.9 FM in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has been airing the radio series Peace Talks, which “investigates how people can make peace and pursue non-violent solutions to conflict—within themselves, their families and communities, and the world.”

Peace Talks airs on the last Friday of each month at 8:00 a.m. (MT). Its next program, Martin Luther King Junior’s Path to Nonviolence, the second part of a two-part program, will be airing on February 25, 2005.

This series has addressed topics and issues ranging from “Seeking Civility in Political Discourse” to “Preventing Bullying in Our Schools” to “Mediating Conflict in the Workplace”. A national series is currently in the development and fund-raising stage.
