Rainier Avenue Radio information, education, and community awareness engagement campaign during the coronavirus pandemic
Rainier Avenue Radio (www.rainieravenueradio.world).
Rainier Avenue Radio is a south Seattle radio station and digital media hub. We are proud to serve south Seattle and surrounding communities with opportunities to engage with critical issues, compelling stories, and quality entertainment 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During the current coronavirus pandemic, Rainier Avenue Radio will continue our efforts to provide educational and informational broadcasts about the coronavirus as well as broadcasting the impact that the coronavirus is having on south Seattle’s diverse residents, service providers, housing, childcare, schools, and businesses.
It’s just as important that we amplify the diverse voices of our communities and share your narratives of unanticipated challenges caused by the coronavirus over our broadcast media networks as part of our communication strategies. It’s also important that our communities can access reliable information, have a resource to filter misinformation, and lower anxieties or fears about the disease while trying to normalize life and not let fear rule daily living in our communities
We are asking that the community connect with us in this effort. There will be opportunities to join us for broadcasts to share your actions and community needs. We will be hosting a special broadcast entitled “The Impacts of the Coronavirus in south Seattle and Surrounding Communities” 1-3pm Friday March 13th.
Hosted by Tony B with special guests:
Candace Jackson - Educator Consultant III: Public Health - Seattle & King County
Bruce A. Harrell - Coronavirus Small Business Task Force, appointed by Mayor Jenny Durkan
Omari Salisbury - Manager, Africatown-Central District Media
Marcus Green - South Seattle Emerald - Editor in Chief.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW to be healthy, safe, & aware. Due diligence, but not letting fear normalize your daily living!
