Local, national, and international news stories are produced daily at WBAI's studios in New York by an award-winning staff of seasoned journalists, in collaboration with community news trainees and volunteers. The Evening News provides in-depth coverage and analysis of the critical stories and issues that affect the WBAI listening area and beyond. The Evening News has led other New York area news organizations in coverage of a range of issues - nuclear power; women's rights; police brutality and racial profiling; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights; prisoners' rights; and many other areas traditionally glossed over or ignored by corporate media.
The Evening News internship program has served as a portal for many radio novices who have gone on to produce programming for WBAI; Pacifica; National Public Radio; American Urban Radio Network; Latino USA; Free Speech Radio News; radio stations WINS, WNYC, and WFUV in New York; NBC; and more.
