Indiana's First Gay-Themed Radio Show Debuts on WFHB

[BLOOMINGTON, IN] - bloomingOUT, a new locally-produced weekly radio show targeting the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, is poised to debut on Bloomington community radio WFHB.

Serving up an hour of live talk, interviews and musical performances every Thursday at 6 p.m., bloomingOUT will feature appearances by such local notables as Kinsey Institute Director John Bancroft and activist Joyce Warner-Stone. The Bloomington-based broadcast is hosted by Mark Brostoff and Helen Harrell and produced by more than a dozen volunteers at WFHB.

The program was conceived and executive-produced by WFHB News Director Chad Carrothers as part of WFHB's ongoing News and Public Affairs Initiative, which this year alone has introduced such heavyweights as BBC World Service, Free Speech Radio News, and south central Indiana's only Spanish-language talk show, Hola Bloomington. In reviewing all of the programs already scheduled and the large listener response the station receives, it became clear that the addition of a GLBT-oriented program would help WFHB better serve the Bloomington community, Carrothers said.

It's been a long summer for bloomingOUT producers Jeffrey Bennett and Jays Janney as they prepare the debut show set for October 9th. Bennett and Janney agree that the long hours of preparation are definitely starting to pay off. "We have a great team of volunteers providing input and story ideas for the show," Bennett explains, adding that the energy of the show will be informative, upbeat, and entertaining to both the gay and straight communities.

Musical director Lee Chapman is eager to provide a forum for local gay musicians to showcase their work. "This is a very exciting opportunity for many of these performers," Chapman said.

bloomingOUT will air every Thursday from 6-7pm beginning October 9th on Indiana's only community radio station, WFHB 91.3 & 98.1 FM. More information is available by contacting News Director Chad Carrothers at [email protected] or by calling WFHB at 323-1200.
