KYW Newsradio introduces “Flashpoint,” a new 30-minute program designed to provide a forum for local and national influencers, as well as listeners, to share their points of view on the most relevant Philadelphia news stories of the week. The show airs on KYW Newsradio every Sunday morning at 8:30 AM.
Hosted by KYW Newsradio Community Affairs reporter, Cherri Gregg, “Flashpoint” offers context on the week’s headlines with a particular focus on community affairs, political news, civil rights and grassroots issues impacting the Philadelphia area.
“I am very excited to be a part of this effort to provide a platform to flesh out issues affecting our community,” said Gregg. “With so much happening in the news, it is imperative that we create a forum where we can dig deeper and more fully explore multiple points of view.”
“We’re excited about this new KYW venture, and in particular, Cherri’s proven ability to stay connected to our community and get the right players to the table for these spirited and meaningful discussions,” said Steve Butler, Vice President of News for CBS RADIO and KYW Newsradio’s Director of Programming.
The show is presented in three segments: The Flashpoint Debate, a Newsmaker interview, and a non-profit “Change Maker of the Week,” which highlights an individual or group making a difference in the community.
