On October 25th, 2019 ATMI Youth Producers took their radio show straight to the people. At the Wilda Marsten Theater in the Loussac Library, we hosted “In Other News: Live On Stage” where we presented our radio show in front of a live audience.
Segments include: a compilation of ‘Where Are They Now’ interviews with former ATMI youth producers and staff about working on In Other News throughout its 15 years, live interview with former youth reporter Tiana Johnson, “Sound Over Silence” coverage of a recent music concert in downtown Anchorage that aimed to bring mental health awareness to the community, a story of mental health struggles from Natalie Fraser who is the founder of the youth-led organization Mental Health Advocacy Through Storytelling (MHATS), and a live interview with MHATS members Natalie Fraser and Sydney Bidwell. Plus, much more!
