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.
