Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2009
Today, the BAM Radio Network (BRN), a joint project of Moving & Learning and Jackstreet Media Ventures, announced a partnership with the Afterschool Alliance to launch ASA Radio (http://www.afterschoolalliance.org). The new media resource will keep afterschool advocates and supporters abreast of the latest developments in the on-going effort to ensure that all children have access to affordable, quality afterschool programs. Available on demand, the program will be nanocasted on the Afterschool Alliance website and distributed to members through the organization's newsletter. The ASA Radio launch is part of BAM Radio Network's continued campaign to reach underserved communities.
"I'm delighted that the Afterschool Alliance has this opportunity to work with BAM Radio Network to provide timely and important information about the myriad ways in which afterschool programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn and help working families," said Afterschool Alliance Executive Director Jodi Grant. "Our very first guest is Judge Glenda Hatchett, a long-time friend of the Afterschool Alliance, a deeply committed supporter of afterschool programs and the emcee of ceremonies for our Afterschool for All Challenge next week. Each year, the Challenge brings hundreds of advocates from across the country to our nation's capitol to speak to their Members of Congress about the importance of afterschool programs."
"We're pleased with the opportunity to collaborate with Jodi Grant on ASA Radio and are confident the program will help expand the reach of the Afterschool Alliance and spread the message about the importance of afterschool programs," said Rae Pica, co-founder of the BAM Radio Network.
