Radio Broadcast Camp


Radio Broadcast Camp was created in 2017 by ThreeSixty and MPR News, in memory of longtime MPR News employee and ThreeSixty champion Toni Randolph.

The fourth and fifth ThreeSixty Journalism/MPR News Radio Broadcast Camp took place in June 2021. Additional partners included MIGIZI, KRSM and American Indian Family Center. Over two one-week camps and under expert instruction from MPR Newsroom staff, students learned how radio is unique and built skills around writing and interviewing for radio. Students then embarked on their own radio adventure of interviewing, script writing and producing. This year’s focus was BIPOC youth leaders. Here are their stories.
