Blunt Youth Radio

WMPG’s Blunt Youth Radio Project brings together Maine teenagers to produce audio stories and interviews on topics that matter to them. Finished work is aired on WMPG or made available on the Ear Scramble Podcast.

CrewYoung people handle all aspects of audio production from story development, contacting interview subjects to reporting, recording, editing, engineering
and on-air hosting – there is room for everyone
to be part of our audio team.

Blunt Youth Radio Project is the winner of thirteen regional and national broadcasting awards and our work has aired on various NPR programs, the BBC, Marketplace, and This American Life, as well as many stations around the country through the Public Radio Exchange.

Blunt Youth Radio runs various workshops throughout the year.  Learn more about our programs by visiting
