What's @ Risk?

What's @ Risk?

Hi, this is Mike Christian, host of What's @ Risk. What's @ Risk is a reprisal of the show that ran on WBZ NewsRadio from 2009 to 2011. Weekly episodes will air every Saturday night at 9:00 p.m. What's @ Risk is a platform for informed guests to discuss an array of current social, economic, environmental, cultural, and business topics in this fragile, divisive, and uncertain time in the world. There are a wealth of topics to be explored. Show content will be available on social media, websites, and podcasts for educational institutions, corporations, nonprofits, authors, educators, social entrepreneurs, and traditional media. Appealing to a broader listening audience, What's @ Risk will be informative and entertaining. The format will revolve around topical issues with interviews, diverse perspectives, and discussions. Listeners, PR professionals, and potential guests can e-mail and text questions, make comments, or inquire about interview opportunities. These listener call-ins will become feedback segments on future shows. I'm excited to bring back What's @ Risk on WBZ NewsRadio and iHeartMedia, given our challenging times. I'm looking forward to providing a platform for meaningful discussion and thought-provoking perspectives.
