LISTEN in Petersburg

With the shrinking media landscape, many communities are underrepresented in the media. To hear from these communities, NPR Illinois hosts an event called LISTEN. The Petersburg, Ill. community was chosen for the March LISTEN event and with the help of Broadgauge, a local restaurant and event space, NPR Illinois spoke to several area residents and learned about the joys, challenges and media usage in the community. Community Voices co-hosts Vanessa Ferguson and Randy Eccles listen back to the event recording and provide analysis of the topics discussed.

LISTEN in Petersburg was funded by a grant from the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln.

Vanessa is the Community Voices Production Coordinator. Reach Vanessa at vfergu3@uis.edu.
