YM Blog-A-Thon: Face the Race with Anyi

Youth Outlook and Wiretap are kicking off the first ever Youth Media Blog-A-Thon. This month’s topic is the 2008 presidential election.

FACE THE RACE: Election Excerpts

Yesterday’s Face The Race was chock full of goodness, like this bit from Youth Radio L.A.’s Consuelo Cisneros. Consuelo reported live via phone into our Oakland studio from the L.A. basin. Catch her in conversation with FTR hosts King Anyi and Denise. (Real Media Format)

Word From Around The State

Youth Radio L.A.’s Jordan Monroe filed this voice and music montage of young voter from around the state today. We just put it up on Face The Race, and now we’re turning it around and bringing the piece straight to you.

Jordan traveled to college campuses across California, and managed to capture the most diverse “vox” piece on young voters The Flow has heard this year.

Props, Jordan, props.

Obamamania

This one’s for King Anyi… remember how the other day you said, after hearing who the Governator and Chuck Norris had given their endorsements you’d back whoever Hulk Hogan got behind?

Well I think you’re gonna be happy with the Hulksters choice.

Note: this is no way represents an endorsement of the candidate in question… we’re just telling you like it is, brother.
