Home Ground w/ Brian Kahn
Tuesdays at 6:30PM
- Hosted by Brian Kahn
Artemis Common Ground produces this award-winning half-hour, weekly public affairs radio series, distributed via the internet and broadcast on public radio throughout Montana and northern Wyoming. Home Ground's mission is to stimulate dialog about the changes and choices affecting our future, and we pursue that goal through substantive and thought-provoking discussion of western economic, religious, cultural, social and environmental issues as well as our place in the larger world. While examining areas of conflict, we emphasize shared values – the often-overlooked “common ground” of diverse community interests. Guests and their views are always treated with respect. Our goal is for listeners to develop appreciation of differing viewpoints and to encourage them to fulfill their responsibility as informed citizens in a democracy. Home Ground presents issues in ways that are interesting and meaningful to a broad audience.
Home Ground is hosted by Brian Kahn, whose diverse background includes work as collegiate boxing coach, attorney, President of the California Fish and Game Commission, Director of the Montana Nature Conservancy, author, journalist and documentary filmmaker. In 2009, Brian was a recipient of the Montana Governor's Award for the Humanities.
Home Ground was named in 2002 by the Montana Broadcasters Association as the state’s Outstanding Non-Commercial Radio Program. In 2003, Home Ground received the Small Business Administration’s Journalist of the Year Award. In 2006, Home Ground won the OWAA National Excellence in Programming Award.
