The Auburn Media Group is made up of several radio and two news stations. The media group is intended to offer listeners the best music in category while interweaving conscientious, ecologically responsible alternative news.
With the current trend in centralized media control and ownership a growing number of people simply do not trust the major media outlets to provide honest coverage of the news that really matters. Along this line of thought the Commission On Freedom Of The Press had this to say: “Protection against government is now not enough to guarantee that a man who has something to say shall have a chance to say it. The owners and managers of the press determine which person, which facts, which version of the facts, and which ideas shall reach the public.” Regrettably this quote rings true, and the cognitive map, our world view, can and is manipulated accordingly.
This is resulting in the decline in mainstream media listenership and the demand for quality alternatives. We realize that today’s media is responsible for informing its listener with up to date information that is socially, ecologically, and politically responsible. Our productions are designed for the listener that wants to develop an independent assessment of community and world events. We also realize it’s our duty to aid listeners in deconstructing the underlying assumptions of the dominant, mainstream media’s narrative and think outside the box when determining what is news worthy, which perspective is most appropriate, and what ideas need to be supported or challenged.
More than ever before alternative media sources are needed, and fortunately the necessary technologies are available to make them possible and effective.
Thank you for tuning into The Auburn Media Group.
