In this episode of Catalyst Radio we talk with Renato Delos Reyes with Community Media Center’s locally focused citizen journalism news site The Rapidian.

Delos Reyes is the community engagement specialist for The Rapidian. New to the position, he is focusing on both the reader or “media consumer” experience, as well as enlisting interested citizens in creating content for The Rapidian.

We preview some of the topics of interest that are currently surfacing on the site, such as new local business, politics and food, and about the “beat” reporters that provide the content.

Delos Reyes also puts out the invitation for anyone interested in the vibrant teaching environment at The Rapidian to apply for one of the several internships available.



Music featured this week on Catalyst Radio is from a local artist who has received some recent coverage on The Rapidian. We’re sampling from Nathan Kalish’s release Delicate Veins; the song “Cold.”

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.
