The 11th Annual Homelessness Marathon, a 14-hour national radio dialogue
on poverty and housing in the US, will take place Weds. night to Thurs.
morning, Feb. 20-21. 

More than 100 radio and TV stations across the country will air this
unique program; in the Boston area, you can hear it on WMBR 88.1 FM, or
streaming live at wmbr.org. 

Originating this year in Nashville, the Marathon is a live, outdoor,
broadcasting event featuring homeless people, advocates for the homeless
and call-ins from the public. A broadcast booth is set up outside, with
open mics for people who are out on the street in Nashville that night.
The Marathon does not raise money for charity. Its mission is to raise
consciousness, by covering a broad range of topics, speaking with
experts, taking calls from around the country, and above all, by putting
homeless people on the air directly.

The national broadcast starts 7pm Weds. to 9am Thurs.  The WMBR News
Dept. is also producing a one-hour program on homelessness in Greater
Boston, which will air 6-7pm Weds.
