What is Radio Rotary?
Radio Rotary is an independent nonprofit organization created by Rotarians from the Hudson Valley and supported by many Rotary clubs as well as by commercial sponsors. Its product is a half-hour radio program and podcast that promotes the goals of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation: “Service above Self” and “Doing Good in the World.”
Guests interviewed by seasoned co-hosts typically work for programs that address such issues as poverty, education, health, the environment, addiction, and housing. Programs range from covering organizations and events in the Hudson Valley, including some sponsored by Rotary clubs, to the activities of national and international organizations.
Woven throughout is the spirit of Rotary, the belief that humanitarian endeavors that build goodwill and better friendships in our community, nation, and world contribute to peace and understanding.
