WMFE Re-Launches Spotlight Segment on Sept. 1 with New Format

WMFE Re-Launches Spotlight Segment on Sept. 1 with New Format

August 30, 2022 (ORLANDO) – WMFE/WMFV, the NPR affiliate serving the Orlando area and nine counties across Central Florida, will launch a revamped version of its weekly arts, culture and entertainment segment “Spotlight” on Sept. 1, 2022. The segment, hosted by WMFE’s All Things Considered host Nicole Darden Creston, will air at 4:45 p.m. on Thursdays.

“Spotlight” will relaunch as both a four-minute radio segment and an extended podcast.
The segment will explore Central Florida’s arts scene from a unique perspective and amplify voices not often heard. Topics might range from a discussion about how art creates empathy to news about the inner workings of a local theater or museum to segments that just make you laugh. “Spotlight” will also share performances from creators of all stripes.

Spotlight will kick off with an interview with one of Orlando’s most prolific artists, Asaan Brooks, better known as “Swamburger,” who is saying goodbye to the City Beautiful.

WMFE also recently launched a revamped version of its economic segment, now hosted by local Morning Edition host, Talia Blake. The segment airs on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. and focuses on how economic issues are impacting the people of Central Florida. Since relaunching the segment three months ago, Blake has tackled issues of housing, driver’s license suspension and the impact of the high cost of education.

WMFE provides Central Florida with unbiased journalism and fact-based content that empower the community to better understand and participate in our diverse and complex world. The organization strives to be part of the solution to critical problems including misinformation, division, and the nation’s declining journalism infrastructure.
