The Econews Report with Various Hosts- Thursday 1:30-2pm

Timely interviews on environmental issues that matter most on the North Coast, along with news and information on upcoming meetings, hikes and events. Engineered by Fred McLaughlin. Hosts include: Ken Burton - Dan Ehresman - Northcoast Environmental Center; Scott Greacen - Friends of the Eel River; Jen Kalt - Humboldt Baykeeper; Jen Savage - Surfrider Foundation.

The EcoNews Report has aired on KHSU for over 35 years and began as "The Environmental Report" started by Gregg McVickar (host of sydicated public radio show Undercurrents ) in Spring of 1975. The weekly guest at that time was John Amodio, then-director of the Northcoast Environmental Center, predecessor to Tim McKay who replaced Amodio at the NEC very shortly after. The renamed EcoNews Report came into its own under host McKay, longtime environmental activist and longtime Executive Director of the Northcoast Environmental Center.
