Ecoman and the Skeptic, Philadelphia University’s green radio show, has received an award for “best practices in communications” from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), a national organization of communications, development and alumni relations professionals.
Ecoman and the Skeptic, the first green radio show to broadcast from a college or university, was awarded honorable mention in the 2010 CASE II Accolades Award and cited for “accomplishments in creating planning, production, and promotion of programs [that] merit the accolades and admiration of your peers.” The award will be presented during the group’s annual meeting Feb. 7-9 in Philadelphia.
The radio show, hosted by PhilaU sustainability experts Rob Fleming and Chris Pastore, just finished its second season broadcasting live on The Green Talk Network. The show is designed to be both entertaining and informative on a wide range of issues relating to sustainability.
Guests this season included actor and environmentalist Ed Begley Jr., Leonard Bonnaci, director of event operations for the Philadelphia Eagles, alternative fuel expert and economist Tom Drennen and Philadelphia Inquirer environment reporter Sandy Bauers.
