Noncommercial WNYC-A-F/NEW YORK's "RADIO ROOKIES" program is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week with special broadcasts revisiting some of the alumni from the group. The station is also rebroadcasting the hour-long RADIO ROOKIES special "GROWING UP, GETTING BY."
The program, which puts a diverse group of young aspiring broadcasters to work on news features, often about themselves, won the PEABODY AWARD in 2006 and has also won several other awards.
