WLRN-Miami Herald News brings Art Basel to you through our digital coverage -- and our community of listeners.
Art Basel goes beyond the Miami Beach Convention Center. In the next few days, we want to know what you think about the art, people, and events you're seeing throughout South Florida during Basel. Here are two things we're looking for:
On Sunday, April 7th, Florida will celebrate its first official “Everglades Day.” Established by the Florida Legislature, Everglades Day honors South Florida’s unique wetland ecosystem, the wild inhabitants who live there and all the passionate Floridians working to conserve this magical place.
As a tribute, WLRN will run a month-long TV and radio series entitled, "Guardians of the Everglades" which will profile people from a variety of different backgrounds but who are bound by a common desire to save our state's national treasure for future generations.
Every year, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in America’s shelters.
“Shelter Me” is an inspiring series that celebrates shelter pets with positive and uplifting stories.
“Shelter Me” focuses on the success stories to bring more people into the shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance.
With stories ranging from adopted shelter dogs now volunteering at local hospitals to a family choosing a new feline friend to join their lives, “Shelter Me” emphasizes all of the positive work these animals contribute to the world.
Redistricting, property insurance, Medicaid expansion and political transparency were among the topics covered during this week’s Town Hall event on Session 2013 of the Florida Legislature hosted by WLRN and the Miami Herald. The second annual forum marks the beginning of WLRN's coverage of Session 2013, which convenes March 5 and continues through May 3.
Continuing its search for the New American Dream in Miami, the Marketplace Morning Report goes to one of the city's poorest neighborhoods: Liberty City. Host Jeremy Hobson interviews local residents and takes a driving tour.
In the second segment, Hobson's panel of Miami journalists, including WLRN news director Dan Grech, returns for a discussion of what each panel member considers South Florida's worst economic problem.
In the Marketplace Morning Report's second Wednesday segment, host Jeremy Hobson wonders if home ownership is still part of the American Dream. He speaks with Miami's billionaire condo king, chairman George Perez of the Related Group, and introduces WLRN's Karen Burkett with a story about the challenges that home buying poses to normal-income people competing with investors for the same properties.
Our partners at The Takeaway have been following responses across the country to last year's string of mass shootings.
Their last stop, Texas, focused on the story and activism of Suzanna Gratia Hupp, who said that a mass shooting she witnessed in Texas would have turned out differently had she been allowed to carry a gun.
