Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Today, the BAM Radio Network (BRN), a joint project of Moving & Learning and Jackstreet Media, announced that the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has launched PTA Radio (http://www.pta.org/podcast.asp). The new media resource will give PTA's five million members, including parents, students, educators, school administrators, and business and community leaders, access to the latest insights in parenting, education, health, and the welfare of children and youth.
The channel will feature a special edition of BRN's premier program, Body, Mind and Child (http://www.bodymindandchild.com), co-hosted by Chuck Saylors, National PTA's first-ever male president-elect, and Rae Pica, an early childhood expert with 30 years of experience in the field. The program will be Nanocasted on the PTA web site at http://www.pta.org and distributed to over 300,000 members through the organization's weekly email newsletter. The program will soon be available for download to the organization's members and parents via podcast.
"The National PTA is the nation's largest parent organization bringing together millions of people who are committed to the best interests of our children," said Rae Pica. "We are beyond delighted to collaborate with Chuck Saylors and the very committed PTA team to keep their members informed and empowered."
As the nation's largest volunteer parent organization, PTA comprises more than 5 million members, including parents, students, educators, school administrators, and business and community leaders. With more than 25,000 local units, PTA flourishes in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Department of Defense schools in Europe and the Pacific. PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Membership in PTA is open to anyone who is concerned about the education, health, and welfare of children and youth.
For more than a 100 years, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has provided support, information and resources to families focused on the health and education of children. The organization was founded in 1897 in Washington, D.C., as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst.
About BAM Radio Network:
The BAM Radio Network was launched to address the severe imbalance in parenting practices caused by the "commercialization of parenting" and the emphasis on intellectual development that excludes the critical role of the mind/body connection in early childhood. Created by leading early childhood experts, the programming challenges the popular educational misconceptions and seeks to provide the most up-to-date insights from leading experts in the field of child development. The network is a joint venture between New Hampshire-based Moving & Learning and Los Angeles-based Jackstreet Media Ventures LLC. The program is produced by Emmy winning broadcaster Errol Smith and distributed through the Affiliate Nanocasting Network.
