In this first part of a special two-part series focusing on infrastructure in Nebraska,the Rural Radio Network will devote an hour of air time across our network of stations as we talk with experts from the national, state, and local levels about the condition of the roads and bridges across Nebraska, not only in light of the recent floodings, but also into the future. Then, we’ll dive in and discuss rural broadband internet and the challenges faced by rural producers, and more! The second part of this two-part series will focus on the challenges of human infrastructure in rural Nebraska. That forum is scheduled to air in early November.
The Rural Radio Forum is an hour-long program presented quarterly by the Rural Radio Network on issues faced by rural Nebraskans. Podcasts of past Rural Radio Forum programs are available at RuralRadio.com.
