Just this week CHIPS recorded its 30th show of “Forest, Communities, and Fire” on KQBM Blue Mountain Radio. When I started my fellowship in October of last year, my supervisor, Steve Wilensky, mentioned the possibility of a stewardship-centered radio show on their local station in the small town of West Point. He seemed entirely unfazed by my complete lack of radio, multimedia, or performance experience. So, in early November of 2015, we dove head first into this new adventure, relying on our knowledge of natural resource principles and on the community to help carry us through. Ten months later, despite the steep technical learning curve, the show has become quite a success!
