Rustbelt Radio

Rustbelt Radio is the Pittsburgh Independent Media Center's weekly review of news from the grassroots and news ignored by the corporate media or covered by it in a biased way.

Rustbelt Radio airs live every Monday from 6-7pm on WRCT 88.3FM in Pittsburgh, PA, every Thursday from 11am to noon on WARC-Meadville from the campus of Allegheny College, every Saturday from 5-6pm on WVJW Benwood, 94.1 FM in the Wheeling, West Virginia area, and WPTS 92.1FM from the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

Rustbelt Radio is an example of independent radio news produced relatively inexpensively by a small group of volunteers. The Rustbelt model could potentially be followed in many other cities.


Rustbelt Radio is produced by a volunteer collective of independent journalists working primarily in the Pittsburgh area. Volunteers conduct interviews and record events. They then edit the audio using a program called audacity which can be downloaded for free. The show is put together each week using a wiki, which operates in much the same way as wikipedia where everyone with a log-in is able to edit. The show is produced and recorded live every Monday.
