The Green

3pm & 7pm Fridays, 2pm Sundays

Embracing the spirit of its name (The Green in Dover and the New Castle Green), The Green will provide an open-air meeting place for Delawareans to discuss events, consider issues and share ideas. This radio and online magazine will present 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.

Occasionally, The Green takes time to highlight work created by students.

This week, we head to Newark to hear from student voices at the University Of Delaware, telling stories about issues and topics they find interesting and important.

These pieces were produced by UD Communications students for a class taught by Nancy Karibjanian, long-time First State journalist, Director of UD’s Center for Political Communication, and one of founders of Delaware Public Media.

How do you want to spend your retirement?  Travelling? Playing golf?

How about restoring pipe organs?

That’s what Bill Church is doing after a career that included creating Brown and Church, the iconic menswear line known for classic ties.

And his pet project is bringing a pipe organ back to Archmere Academy, which saw its previously one sold off during the Great Depression.

For this week’s Enlighten Me, contributor Eileen Dallabrida chronicles Church’s work.

New Castle County has finished surveying residents of two communities along Route 9 about environmental conditions in their neighborhoods— and whether they might ultimately want to relocate, if given the opportunity.


As consumers plunge into the traditional holiday shopping season, they are expected to spend more than ever. They also will shop in more ways, making wish lists via voice-activated personal assistants, activating coupons on their phones, and downloading apps that lead them directly to gifts in the store.
