APS Open Book
SECOND TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH AT 6:00 P.M. ON KANW-FM
When it comes to Albuquerque Public Schools, it’s a safe bet there will be differences of opinion, but one thing most can agree on is that the community benefits from hearing compelling stories about our students, staff, and families. Now, anyone interested in exploring the ins and outs of APS will have that opportunity without ever having to attend a public meeting, schedule appointments with district administrators or scour the internet for information. The APS Communications Department in partnership with the district’s radio station, KANW have introduced a new monthly podcast called APS Open Book. The host of the show, Mark Goodrum, spent 33 years as an APS teacher and band director before retiring a few years ago. Goodrum is passionate about his classroom experiences, is a captivating storyteller and relatable expert. By design, show topics will focus on areas that are difficult to absorb in a brief TV news story or even some longer stories published in print or on the web. Goodrum collaborates with the district and listeners to identify future topics. Send your ideas and feedback to PodCast@aps.edu.
