WABE & ATLANTA INTOWN EXPAND HOWDOYOUATLANTA.COM TO BROADCAST
Culture critic Mike Jordan and Atlanta Intown reporter Sammie Purcell to host weekly radio and video segment highlighting can’t miss area events
WABE, Atlanta’s choice for NPR and PBS, and Atlanta Intown announced today the expansion of How Do You Atlanta?, their joint online community calendar, into radio and video. Fans of the free event calendar can now tune into WABE 90.1FM Wednesdays at 9:45 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. and to WABE TV (Channel 30) at 5 p.m. to catch Atlanta cultural critic Mike Jordan and Atlanta Intown reporter Sammie Purcell talking can’t-miss events in and around the city.
“In Atlanta, there’s always a lot going on, event-wise,” said How Do You Atlanta? Co-host Mike Jordan. “Audiences want the goods on what’s really good in ATL, and that’s exactly what we provide. My personal priority is to keep my fellow Atlantans from all sides of town awash in great options on where, when and how to spend their valued time.”
Jordan’s co-host, Atlanta Intown’s Sammie Purcell, echoed that sentiment and added, “Audiences can expect a certain level of knowledge about the events we’ll be talking about. We wouldn’t suggest something we know nothing about.”
Events highlighted on air by the pair include listings from HowDoYouAtlanta.com, plus insider experiences curated by Purcell and Jordan.
“WABE has always been a strong provider of information regarding arts and culture in Atlanta,” said WABE Chief Content Officer Scott Woelfel. “We’re excited to team up with Atlanta Intown to add this new dimension to our coverage.”
