Delmarva Today 5-26-23 The Wicomico River


The Wicomico River: The Soul of Salisbury is an examination the environmental importance of this river to the region. This documentary is a collaboration of the Delmarva Public Media staff with the Salisbury University's Environmental Studies Program to create the student-led audio documentary exploring key environmental topics related to the Wicomico River. The 11 students in Dr. Michael Lewis's Environmental Studies Seminar learned how to be reporters, interviewers and editors under the mentorship of Delmarva Public Media's Bryan Russo, director of production and operations, and Matthew Heim, deputy general manager & development director. The resultant piece by these new storytellers is an intriguing and insightful work which strengthens our commitment to producing local program. The project was funded with grants from the Chesapeake Bay Trust and City of Salisbury.
