Delaware Public Media

The Green

3pm & 7pm Fridays, 2pm Sundays

Embracing the spirit of its name (The Green in Dover and the New Castle Green), The Green will provide an open-air meeting place for Delawareans to discuss events, consider issues and share ideas. This radio and online magazine will present the highest quality Delaware news and information. Through informed reporting, nuanced storytelling and in-depth interviews, The Green reaches past stereotypes and knee-jerk reactions to encourage a fuller, more robust discovery of Delaware, today.

It’s taken the state years to get to this point and Delaware Public Media’s Katie Peikes explains why.

April is Autism Awareness month – and this week we’re sharing the story of a remarkable transformation for one boy living with autism and his family.

Newark Charter Junior/Senior High School student Vyshnavi Kosigishroff grew up in a family of scientists. When she was eight years old, she began to take an interest in Delaware’s factories, emitting plumes of toxic chemicals into the air every day. 


One day, she turned to her dad and asked him what the toxic chemicals were, and he told her about air quality and ozone.
