(Rochester, NY) – The Third Coast International Audio Festival brings the best new documentaries produced worldwide to U.S. airwaves in a special two-hour program, 2009 Third Coast Broadcast, airing Friday, November 26 at 12 p.m. on AM 1370/AM-HD91.5-2. Hosted by award-winning writer, producer, and humorist Gwen Macsai, the featured documentaries, all winners of the ninth annual TC / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition, prove just how powerful radio can be. Innovative and insightful, the stories engage, provoke, entertain, and transport listeners, proving that all one needs to discover new worlds is a little box and an antenna.
In addition to showcasing the winning documentaries, the 2010 Third Coast Broadcast includes interviews with the winning producers, who give a glimpse into the art of audio storytelling, a profile of the year's Audio Luminary Award winner, and highlights from the annual Awards Ceremony.
