National Geographic Music & Radio is partnering with Salem Radio Network to offer a weekly two-hour radio program.
It targets family audiences and is hosted by reporter/adventurer Boyd Matson. The series, “National Geographic Weekend,” is produced by National Geographic and debuts this month, distributed by Salem.
Matson will conduct interviews in-studio and on location. The first episodes feature chats with National Geo’s Dereck and Beverly Joubert, naturalists and filmmakers; and another National Geographic Explorer in Residence, Dr. Robert Ballard, who found the Titanic more than 20 years ago and continues to explore the oceans.
Matson hosted the “National Geographic Explorer” television program on TBS and MSNBC, and is the host of “Wild Chronicles,” a public television series by National Geographic Mission Programs.
