Since 1994 — nearly 20 years — Blunt Youth Radio has provided direct media access for the youth of Southern Maine. Every week, high school age youth from the Portland area, both free and incarcerated, work together to create a live show from scratch, taking on topics that they care about, from their own perspectives. At Blunt, young people handle all aspects of show production: reporting, on-air hosting, selecting topics, locating guests, studio production, and broadcast engineering. Blunt also has an on-going outreach project with youth incarcerated by the State of Maine. Our program is the winner of thirteen regional and national broadcasting awards. Work produced by Blunt has aired on NPR, the BBC, Marketplace, and This American Life, among others.
