American Made Series on Morning Edition, Weekdays on KUAC FM

American MadeAfter decades of decline and the loss of millions of jobs — many of them well-paid, specialized vocations that fueled post-War and Cold War housing booms, and educated generations of young people — a new kind of American manufacturing has emerged. It’s leaner, meaner and putting into practice what economists are saying is the recipe for industrial resurgence: use technology to control costs and boost production, rely on risk-taking investors to back the boldest ideas, and, yes, employ fewer workers — but arm them with better education and modern skill sets. Listen for this special series over the next month as Morning Edition explores the new American manufacturing landscape. Tune in weekday mornings from 5 to 8 on KUAC FM, KUAC online, KUAC HD, and KUAC TV 9.5.

Start Up, Saturdays at 8:30 pm on KUAC TV

Start Up, SaturdaysThis series offers viewers an up-close and personal look into the world of the modern American entrepreneur. As complicated as starting a business may seem, the goal is to demystify the process by sharing the real life experiences of average Americans who are taking control of their own destiny while creating jobs for others. Over 90% of all companies in America are small businesses. Those small businesses employ over 50% of all people working in this country. Today’s media rarely focus on the stories of those Americans and their hard work, despite small-businesses being the backbone of the country. START UP explores the next generation of American business owners and the dreams that drive them. Tune in Saturday nights at 8:30, on KUAC TV Channel 9.1, or GCI Channel 9 & GCI Channel 657 for HD.
