Fusion Youth Radio

GroupAccount image
Fusion Youth Radio (FYR) is a diverse group of young people with a desire to make their voices a part of history through creative, youth-produced media. FYR is based at the Marian Cheek Jackson Center for Saving and Making History and produced in partnership with WXYC Chapel Hill and Sacrificial Poets.

FYR began as a summer audio production workshop for high school students to learn to tell their stories in their own words. Building on the initiative and inspiration of our first group of talented youth producers, FYR LIVE was born. The bi-weekly show airs every other Sunday at 5 pm on WXYC Chapel Hill 89.3 FM and can be streamed live on their website. FYR LIVE features youth spoken word artists, music, audio documentaries, and discussion around questions of social justice and concepts of community.
