New Roots Radio

New Roots Radio was a weekly newsmagazine distributed on community radio stations in Canada. It ran from 2012 to 2013. I recruited and mentored a core team of ten young volunteer host/reporters in our base of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and another 15 contributors from around the country. They produced a series of documentaries and reports on immigrant life in Canada. The program tried to ditch the cliches of "seeking a better life" and really understand how immigrants deal with living in a new country, one that doesn't always live up to their standards. It was awarded a $9000 grant from the National Community Radio Association of Canada.

I'm a journalist, radio producer, project manager, instructor and developer. I've reported from Latin America and the Caribbean and my work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have taught journalism, English, soccer, physics, robotics, anthropology and storytelling in board rooms, classrooms, lecture halls, playing fields and mud huts. I am also a developer, working an several software tools for education and journalism. I divide my time between Mexico and Canada.

(Conrad's) vision, his journalistic nose, and his tireless search to go one more step for the new, helped us find really impactful stories...
