Starting on Earth Day, Green Source DFW is broadcasting live.

The online environmental news publication, founded in 2011, is launching a new monthly program called Green Source On the Air.

The inaugural show will kick off April 22 at 6 p.m. on Zoom, hosted by Green Source DFW director Wendel Withrow. 

"We are going to cover a few serious topics and a few fun topics like special places to go hiking and how to enjoy the natural beauty we are all trying to save," said Withrow. 

The live program expands the reach of North Texas’ award-winning environmental news publication. Both are projects of the Memnosyne Institute, a Dallas-based humanitarian nonprofit. 

The free broadcast will cover current and local environmental topics, featuring guest interviews, speakers, Q&A with the audience and entertainment. 

Dallas College, formerly Dallas County Community College District, is the show’s title sponsor along with additional support from John and Margie Haley, EarthX and Dallas Sierra Club.

The Earth Day show will feature environmental justice activist Marsha Jackson, who led a tenacious fight to remove Shingle Mountain, which towered over her backyard for three years. 

Also, Green Source DFW columnist and author Amy Martin, who is writing a new book called Wild DFW  will talk about the best places to hike in DFW. 

In addition, Public Citizen activist Rita Beving will report on environmental bills moving through the Texas Legislature. 

To round out the show, the Austin-based band Montopolis will stream their program The Legend of Big Bend.

"Get your favorite food and drink and join us for this Earth Day celebration," said Withrow.
