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.
