The Greenwood Beat – WFPG radio station is excited to announce the launch of a new segment called Let’s READ. Starting on Saturday, January 6, 2024, this on-air reading program aims to provide children with the opportunity to develop strong reading foundations.
Amid the recent controversies surrounding TPS and the appointment of the first black female school Superintendent, Dr. Ebony Johnson, The Greenwood Beat – WFPG decided to take action. Recognizing that many students are missing out on the benefits of being read to, they rallied volunteers to participate in the program and read on air.
The Let’s READ segment will cater to children aged 0 to 8 years old. Volunteers from the community have eagerly signed up to read to these young listeners. The series will kick off with an interview between author Mr. Troy J Petit, Sr., and Dr. Angela K. Chambers, CEO of The Greenwood Beat – WFPG. Mr. Petit, the author of “Little Kings Learn…Hugs of Love,” will share the book’s insights on the importance of love, affection, and kindness in parenting.
Other notable books that will be featured in the Let’s READ segment include works by Dr. Tamecca S. Rogers and co-authors, such as “London Love & Keith Ross.” These engaging stories will captivate young minds and inspire a love for reading.
The Greenwood Beat – WFPG is committed to fostering a love for literature and helping children build solid reading foundations. By bringing this program to the airwaves, they hope to make a positive impact on the lives of young listeners and their families.
Join The Greenwood Beat – WFPG on Saturday, January 6, 2024, from 12:00 PM CST to 3:00 PM and embark on a journey of imagination, learning, and the joy of reading with Let’s READ. www.thegreenwoodbeat.com.
