Celebrate Radio, Solutions-Based News-Information Network to Take Back America, Premieres Jan. 20, 2017 on Web, Phone Apps, Then Satellite from Streetcats Foundation
Celebrate Radio, a new 24/7 national radio information, news, features and music network from Streetcats Foundation, with a focus on "taking back America," re-establishing solutions-based journalism and focused on respect, dignity and hope will premiere on the web and apps around January 20, 2017 and later on national satellite.
Portland, OR, December 19, 2016 --(PR.com)-- CELEBRATE RADIO, a unique new kind of non-profit national news, information, features and music radio network to "take America back" and return respect and dignity to the airwaves, in the planning for 4 years by radio veterans, will premiere within a week of Inauguration day, around January 20, 2017. Produced in Seattle, Portland and San Francisco, its producers say that even still missing some necessary funding, the launch date has been moved up because of the rancid 17 months of campaigns and election outcome that America has been badly wounded by.
The network will devote itself to compelling, solutions-based journalism and "news that matters," while uniting people in projects that can both truly heal and make a meaningful difference in peoples lives while fostering a renewal of compassion. Celebrate Radio also seeks to help combat fake news, eliminate arguing talking heads, gossip and paid partisan surrogates. There will be daily newscasts, numerous features, ways for listeners to become heroes, youth and millennial programming as well as that of many religions. Additionally, there will be a unique blend of Positively Music as well as some entertainment programming. Throughout the day, there will also be inspiring pop music and voices of people from Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Maya Angelou, Robert F. Kennedy, Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandela and many others. Non-partisan and never favoring a specific religion, Celebrate Radio wants to be a voice and a light for cutting through the darkness with hope and kindness while informing, educating and uplifting.
The new network will be streamed on 7 streaming web sites, smart phone apps and then on a national and later international satellite network. There will also be video pages with videos produced by CR and others.
Leading the project is Don Fass, a broadcast veteran, author and journalist who has done 2000 interviews, his weekly Reaching Up interview show has been heard in 200 countries and he successfully started one of the first radio news services when he was only 17. Don is also the author of several books including The Huge Little Book of Trump, The Awesome Teen Recovery Guide and the forthcoming Fixing America and has reported from 29 countries for major stations and radio networks.
