Small Things Considered

WNYC Radio

In recent years, radio programmers have tended to overlook a very important part of the listening audience: children. WNYC Radio is a notable exception. Small Things Considered is a live three-hour daily radio program designed especially for children ages 6 to 12. The program successfully combines contemporary, classical and children’s music with bright, informative and creative educational segments. There is also telephone dialogue between the hosts, Kathy O’Connell and Larry J. Orfaly, and children who live in the station’s listening area. For catering to an oft forgotten audience with a program that is both entertaining and educational and for regarding children as an important and worthy audience for radio, a Peabody Award to WNYC Radio for Small Things Considered.
