Celebrate Black History Month with New Program Packages

APM is pleased to offer two new radio packages that celebrate African American lives and experiences – from the everyday to the extraordinary. Historically Black shares the stories behind the objects. Making Oprah shares the stories behind the icon.

APM Reports has a new, exclusive package for stations –  three, hour-long programs based on its highly acclaimed podcast series, Historically Black, a collaboration with The Washington Post, complete with on-air and digital assets to promote it. This package is available at no charge to APM Stations.

Objects hold history. They evoke stories stamped in time. The Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. has opened up a world of stories that visitors are flocking to discover.

To mark the September 2016 opening of the museum, The Washington Post invited people across the country to submit photographs of objects in their family that connect them personally to black history. APM Reports teamed up with The Post to spotlight some of those objects and the stories behind them. Historically Black reveals intimate and surprising aspects of history through interviews, archival sound and music. We think your listeners will appreciate these rich personal stories, presented by hosts Keegan-Michael Key, Roxane Gay, Issa Rae, Heben Nigatu, and Tracy Clayton.

Available starting January 17, this exclusive radio package consists of three, hour-long programs. Learn more.
January 17-February 28, 2017, with multiple airings permitted.

Please contact APM Reports Station Representative Marge Ostroushko to learn more about this unique opportunity.

It’s easy to look back at The Oprah Winfrey Show and assume its vast success and cultural impact was all preordained. But Making Oprah reveals the show’s scrappy roots and improbable rise through conversations with Winfrey and the mostly female team that produced her show.
In exclusive interviews with WBEZ Chicago, Oprah Winfrey tells the behind-the-scenes story of her iconic TV talk show, along with producers, staffers, TV executives, and ratings rival Phil Donahue. The three-part series chronicles the show’s roots in Chicago, its rise to daytime dominance, and the powerful sway Winfrey came to have in American life.

Making Oprah is produced by WBEZ Chicago, hosted by Jenn White, and distributed by APM. Available now, the Making Oprah radio package features three, hour-long programs. Learn more.
Through February 28, 2017, with multiple airings permitted.
