EcoNews Report

UPDATE: The NEC is very sorry to report that as of Thursday, April 11, 2019, KHSU is no longer broadcasting local community content due to recent, abrupt changes at the station. For now, the NEC’s EcoNews Report is on hold. We appreciate your patience and support while we determine the best way to bring a new version of the EcoNews Report to the airwaves and/or podcasting in the future.

The EcoNews Report was the longest-running public affairs radio show on the North Coast, broadcasting on KHSU from the Humboldt State University campus. The EcoNews Report was hosted by the NEC, EPIC, Friends of the Eel River, and Humboldt Baykeeper and featured guests discussing environmental topics that impact the North Coast and beyond.

EcoNews Report episodes were posted to the KHSU website and prior episodes are also available as a podcast on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.



An archive of episodes from 2011 through mid-2017 is also available by clicking HERE.
