Radio programming note: WSB on KUOW (94.9 FM) Monday

If you’re near a radio or computer at 9 am Monday, your editor here will be one of several guests during the live interview show “Weekday” on KUOW (94.9 FM, or listen online here) — here’s their description of what we’ll be talking about (not on KUOW’s website yet so we’re excerpting from e-mail the booking producer sent us):

Neighborhood blogs

A townhouse is going up next door, someone got mugged around the corner, and a new coffee shop opened down the street. That’s the kind of thing you want to know when it happens near you. But it’s probably not going to make it into the city newspaper. Hyper local bloggers have sprung up to fill you in on your neighborhood news. Some bloggers are reporters. Some are software developers. Some are just curious citizens. One only writes haikus. Are local blogs how all of us will get more information in the future? Is it a sustainable business? Do you read a local blog? E-mail

Other scheduled guests are from Central District News, Rainier Valley Post, OlyBlog, and Hillku (whose writer also contributes to Capitol Hill Seattle). P.S. Our “Rain City Radio” online/phone chat from earlier this week is now archived here as an audio file (and linked from our “About” page, where we have a list of WSB-related coverage links below our bios).

    Congratulations. I’m glad your hard work is earning you some well-deserved visibility. I just hope you don’t burn out! I hardly remember what it is like before having the WSB as my first-of-the-morning news read. Thanks!

    So jealous that I won’t be part of the fun! Congrats and have a great time. Maybe I’ll call in :)

    I love the rolling Weekday promos that grow in inclusiveness with each line as host tries to exhort participation… Do you read a neighborhood blog? Do you read or write a neighborhood blog? Do you know of, read or write a neighborhood blog? Do you live in a neighborhood? Call in and share your story.

    J, you forgot “Do you have a computer? Have you ever seen a computer?” .. Nancy, no worries, we’ll be OK. On Monday morning we had to be up way early anyway – it’s Charlestown Cafe’s reopening day and we’re planning to be there “live” (via the miracle of wireless broadband) to turn around pix of the opening at 6 am …

    Kudos to you guys!
    That’s pretty exciting to know.
    Be sure I’ll have coffee in one hand, radio on behind me, and the WSB in front of me….ahhhhh, the good things in life!

Sorry, comment time is over.
