New "Climate Connections" to air daily before 6 p.m.

KZUM is pleased to welcome "Climate Connections"—a brand new program covering environmental issues—to our weekday schedule.

The 90-second program will be aired Monday through Friday at 5:58 p.m.

Formerly the Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media, "Climate Connections" began broadcasting on August 18 with the aim of helping listeners understand how climate change is impacting our lives and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks.

The daily radio programs and accompanying online stories will be reported by a team of reporters who have been writing for the Yale Forum for several years. Each broadcast is hosted by Anthony Leiserowitz, Ph.D., Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Communication.

Find out more about the program and read Climate Connection stories on the companion website at
