24 Hour Radio Race: Heart Moms & Tummy Moms

Members of WTJU’s public affairs team Soundboard got together from August 2-3 to participate in a 24 hour radio extravaganza.  With over 170 other stations worldwide, they battled the clock to create a 4 minute non-fiction audio piece on the theme of “You should know.”  This is the result:
