The EcoNews Report

EcoNews Report is a half-hour enviro news/chat program—with the same familiar host regulars Jennifer Kalt (Humboldt Baykeeper), Tom Wheeler (Environmental Protection Information Center), Larry Glass (Northcoast Environmental Center) and Scott Greacen (Friends of the Eel River) — now airs Saturdays at 10am on local station favorite KHUM (104.3 and 104.7 FM) and is posted to the Lost Coast Outpost.

Prior EcoNews Report episodes are currently available on the KHSU website and available as a podcast on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts. An archive of episodes from 2011 through mid-2017 is  available on our Archive website by clicking HERE.

For decades, the EcoNews Report was  broadcast on KHSU from the Humboldt State University campus — a community favorite and the longest-running public affairs radio show on the North Coast! In April 2019, changes at the station unfortunately pulled the EcoNews Report to an abrupt halt. In September 2019 a new era of the EcoNews Report began, in partnership with Lost Coast Communications.
