Sunday, April 8 at 9 p.m. – Bullied: Teen Stories from Generation PRX

(Rochester, NY) – Bullying isn’t a new story, but lately, it is all over the news. And while young people are often the targets and the actors in bullying, we rarely get to hear their perspectives in the media. Bullied: Teen Stories from Generation PRX is changing that. The hour-long special, airing Sunday, April 8 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2, produced in collaboration with WNPR includes stories from teens with first-hand insight on bullying.

From being called "Osama" in a Boston classroom, to looking at whether bullying prevention programs really work in Anchorage, youth producers from around the globe help show us what we don’t we understand – but need to – about bullying. Join teen hosts Council Brandon and Peython Echelson-Russell for an hour of thought-provoking stories, interviews and teen perspectives on bullying.
