Uprising Radio was founded in July 2003 by Sonali Kolhatkar, host and lead producer of Uprising. Uprising emphasizes connecting global issues with local ones. Simply informing listeners of the problems in the world and our communities is not enough – we hope to motivate our listeners to take an active role in their communities. It is a daily digest of independent news analysis, investigation, education, artistic expression, activism in the public interest. Uprising airs daily on KPFA, KFCF and KPFK, Pacifica Radio stations in California from 8-9 am on weekdays.

 Sonali has just completed a successful crowd funding campaign to expand the reach of her program to Free Speech TV. Sonali is also a weekly columnist for Truthdig.com and the Co-Director of the Afghan Women's Mission, a US-based non-profit that works in solidarity with Afghan women activists. She has a Masters Degree in Astronomy, and lives in Southern California with her husband and two sons. 

Uprising Radio is also produced by Bipasha Shom. She was recently nominated for an LA Press Club Award for her piece on the California Prisoners’ Hunger Strike.
