The Green

3pm & 7pm Fridays, 2pm Sundays

Embracing the spirit of its name (The Green in Dover and the New Castle Green), The Green provides an open-air meeting place for Delawareans to discuss events, consider issues and share ideas. This radio and online magazine presents the highest quality Delaware news and information. Through informed reporting, nuanced storytelling and in-depth interviews, The Green reaches past stereotypes and knee-jerk reactions to encourage a fuller, more robust discovery of Delaware, today.

Delaware Public Media’s Sophia Schmidt explores that project, and what else might need to be done to keep the neighborhood livable long term.

Visitors to Herman Holloway Park in Wilmington will find something new starting next week. 

An outdoor fitness park is being tucked into the park, with the help of AARP.

It’s part of AARP’s national initiative to sponsor a fitness park in every state, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands – as it commemorates its 60th anniversary.

It officially opens Wednesday with a ribbon cutting, but AARP Delaware’s Communication Director Kimberly Iapalucci checked in this week to discuss the new space and AARP’s initiative.

The First State National Historical Park - created in 2013 – is hardly a finished product.

That’s in part because it’s a unique National Park - a collection of seven sites throughout the state.  And how best to present and interpret the story they tell is part of the ongoing work to develop the park.

Delaware’s Public Media’s Sarah Mueller recently spoke with Lorin Felter, the First State National Historical Park’s Interpretation and Education Coordinator where things stand with Delaware’s first and only national park.
