KVMR’s ‘Her Stories’ get acclaim

A KVMR radio project by and about women is receiving regional and national attention.

“Her Story 2002,” a series of 20 stories about women who are personal heroes, is one of five nominations for community radio’s Golden Reel Award in the outstanding national news and public affairs programming category.

Sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, the Golden Reel Awards will be announced in mid-April at the federation’s annual conference.

The four-minute stories are by Women’s Collective of KVMR members.

Five of these stories will be featured on Capitol Public Radio in Sacramento today at 6 a.m. (KXPR 90.9 FM) and 5 p.m. (KXSR 91.7 FM). The Sacramento stations will also include an interview with Joan Buffington, “Her Story 2001’s” producer.

The stories also run at 9:55 a.m. and 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays this month on KVMR (89.5 F.M.).

The signal of Nevada City’s community radio station is heard throughout Nevada County, Sacramento and El Dorado County.

“Her Story 2002” was distributed to more than 60 public radio stations across the country in honor of Women’s History Month. Forty-five stations requested the stories.

“In its second year, ‘Her Story’ is an opportunity for women to learn how to use the media to impact listeners and to feel their own power as women,” Buffington said.

KVMR provided a total of $6,950 both years through its national radio production fund. Both “Her Story 2002” and “Her Story 2001” can be heard online at kvmr.org

“Her Story 2002” was edited and engineered by Dawn Fischer.

In other local broadcast news, the March 3 appearance of New York City author and filmmaker Michael Moore at Center for the Arts will be shown four times this week on Foothills Community Access Television (Channel 11).

The times are 10 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and March 23.

Moore’s book, “Stupid White Men … and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!” was published last month. The New York Times best-selling author of “Downsize This!,” Moore became well-known for his documentary “Roger & Me” and for his “TV Nation” and “The Awful Truth.”
