Radio Mixing Board

About Us

Radio Newark is a Science Radio Station.  Dozens of broadcast partners provide a magical combination of entertainment, information, and inspiration.  We learn the latest developments in astronomy, chemistry, engineering, astronautics, oceanography, meteorology, and so on.  Not dry stuff!  Our hosts are brilliant, engaging, knowledgeable and personable.

Science!  Space news.  Undersea exploration.  Nanoengineering.  Archaeology.  Microelectronics.  Astrobiology.  Do you find these interesting?

Me too.  So we built a radio station that focuses on STUFF THAT MATTERS.

And you started listening.  Others offered excellent suggestions for content.  Two geniuses offered to join as Board members and we became a non-profit, non-commercial educational broadcast service.  Woohoo!

Because things like the Mars Science Laboratory are MORE IMPORTANT than what the Kardashians are wearing.

Radio Newark is operated by Newark Community Radio, Inc., a non-profit corporation chartered to provide non-commercial, educational broadcast services.  NCRI is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

About Stephen Worden

Certified Radio Nut.  Traveled around the world as a Master Radio-Electronics Officer in the U. S. Merchant Marine listening to radio for six to twelve hours a day.  Learned what good radio sounds like.  Got his amateur and commercial broadcast licenses in 1971 and 1974, respectively.  Had a small market AM station as a client where he ran the logs, scheduled the ads, helped with production, made the coffee, and watched the magic happen.

That station is gone, now, and so are all the people that made it great.  Clear Channel bought them out.

To balance that loss, he created a new kind of station, a Science Radio Station.

It’s different from Old Radio in that it is wild and free.  No scripts, no advertisers, no need to reach the masses.  We want the fringe.  We want the top end and no more.  We want the brightest, smartest, most fascinating people to be ON the station and listening as well.

Because it’s LISTEN Radio, Not Talk Radio®

  1. WOW! Talk about timing.

    I had grown tired of our kids getting their butts kicked when it came up to the international sccience and math test results. We were not even close. So rather than complain about the problem I decided to try and do something about it so I did start a company called KidzNScience LLC. We would provide kids hands on science experiments so they could learn that science can be a fun and interesting thing. They would then be better able to understand science and become smarter to help improve their competitive results.

    I was not aware of Radio Newark until just a few days ago. I think it is a great thing and since its science based I love it.

    Now I want to know more if or how I can try and help radio newark try help people. I have so many more questions that are just the tip of the ice berg. Can I possibly meet with you and your team sometime to see how I may be able to improve the results using Radio Newark?

    Thank you again for doing your part to try and help science education.

    1. Thank you, Mike! Yep — I’m sure we’ll find a way to work together. Thanks for reaching out, and thanks for championing SCIENCE!
