Buzz Spotlight on Radio Regent Programmer Murphy Browne
Published: May 25th, 2020
Radio Regent consists of numerous programmers that conduct their own radio shows on a weekly basis.
Topics vary from program to program; however, each offers something exciting and unique. In each issue of the Buzz we highlight community programmers to provide a sense of the “who” behind Radio Regent.
In this issue of the Buzz we feature radio host, journalist, storyteller and activist, Murphy Browne.
: Tell us a little about your cultural background?
: I am an African woman who was born in South America. I grew up in an African centred community where the elders told stories about our African ancestors and our culture before the Maafa (African Holocaust.) My elders were Pan-Africanists and that has greatly influenced every area of my life,
has informed my activism, storytelling etc.,
Besides Radio Regent, what other activities or community groups are you involved in?
: I write a regular column for Share newspaper which is also published online. I am an active blogger at “Words From Murphy Browne.” I was very active in various groups including the Black Action Defense Committee (BADC,) The Organization of Parents of Black Children (OPBC,) Girl Guides of Canada
as a Guider and Diversity Awareness Trainer.
What first inspired you to get into radio?
I was inspired to become involved in radio when I was invited to co-host on Radioactive Feminism at CKLN 88.1 FM, by Oriel Varga who was a member of the collective. In 1998 I began co-hosting Radioactive Feminism on Sunday mornings as part of a collective of women, did a short stint as co-host of The Unheard Voice of the African Woman and began hosting Tuesday Word of Mouth in August 2004.

Ontario Trillium Foundation - Thank You!
Published: August 29th, 2019
Because of Ontario Trillium Foundation, we are able to improve the quality of sound and production at Radio Regent. With their support we are now able to widen our range of audio for live feed and recorded Podcasts, replace our newly 20 year old equipment and even get some top of the line DSLR cameras to invite our listeners visually right into our studios.
Without Ontario Trillium Foundation, we would still be fiddling with daily repairs and maintenance issues to equipment that hangs on 'loose threads'. So we'd like to thank Ontario Trillium Foundation once again for supporting all the work we do here at Radio Regent
and FOCUS Media Arts Centre
