Cotton Radio, PhilaU’s newest radio show, will start an eight-week run today, Oct. 7, airing live from noon to 1 p.m. Click here to listen to live.
Cotton Radio brings the business of cotton to life for retail and apparel leaders and students in the U.S. and internationally.
The show features three Philadelphia University professors and co-hosts – Steven Frumkin, Natalie Nixon and Nioka Wyatt – who aim to highlight the role of cotton as the fiber of first choice in textiles, apparel, home furnishings and other innovative uses. Each weekly show will include a guest interview with an expert on relevant issues, an industry Retailer of the Week, and highlights of innovative student projects at Philadelphia University.
The hosts received a grant from Cotton Inc., to carry out educational programming relating to the cotton business, and Cotton Radio is a key part of this effort.
“Cotton Radio is a show with several purposes: to educate and bring awareness of the world of fashion especially where cotton is concerned and to expand the reach of Philadelphia University as a global leader in fashion to people all over the world using the internet and social media opportunities,” the hosts said. “Our mission is our passion and we look forward to expanding the knowledge base of cotton and the fast-moving world of textiles, apparel and the consumer-retail industries.”
The show will broadcast over internet radio station World Talk Radio’s Variety Channel, and rebroadcast each week on VoiceAmerica’s Business Channel. To listen to live or archived shows, go to www.voiceamerica.com/worldtalkradio/vshow.aspx?sid=1811.
