Delaware Public Media

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.

Ways to Connect

Music by Michael Gordon, David Land, Julia Wolfe, Steve Reich, Philip Glass and Steve Martland

This week, we continue bringing you our series of Candidate Conversations - part of Delaware Public Media’s 2018 Election coverage, and the Delaware Debates we are producing again this fall with the University of Delaware’s Center for Political Communication.

We are examining the race for State Attorney General– and in this interview, Republican Bernard Pepukayi.


In a world with Facebook, Twitter, 24/7 news channels, talk radio, citizen journalism, fake news, real news, audiences are drowning in an overwhelming overload of information.  Clearly a guidepost is needed to identify what is a trustworthy and a reliable source of news and information.

Delaware Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, has created a podcast– "A Matter of Facts" – to delve into this topic as part of its mission is to engage, educate, and inspire all Delawareans through cultural programming.

This week on The Green, we bring you the latest episode of A Matter of Facts  – featuring a conversation with Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism Dean Steve Coll.

Sophia Schmidt, Delaware Public Media

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.


Dr. Sandra Gibney works in the Emergency Department at St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington. She is also a member of Delaware’s Behavioral Health consortium led by Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long.

Among other things, that group is charged with combating the state’s opioid crisis. They’ve made wide-ranging recommendations to Gov. John Carney, helped pass overdose legislation and gone out into communities to pass out Narcan, the opioid overdose antidote.

Dr. Gibney sat down this week with Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino to discuss her role on the consortium connecting people with substance abuse disorder to treatment.

The annual Kent County Economic Summit is fast approaching. This year’s event is Tuesday, September 18 at Delaware Tech’s Terry campus in Dover and will focus on “Digital Transformation in Business.”
