iQ Kids Radio is a commercial-free, family-friendly educational radio station developed by WQED Multimedia and SLB Radio Productions, Inc. in 2012 with generous support from the Junior League of Pittsburgh.
Based on more than 75 years of combined experience in the radio industry, this new, innovative model leverages the assets of WQED, PBS, and the popular Saturday Light Brigade Radio show to develop an online streaming media platform for families with children birth to age 12. iQ Kids Radio is a trusted source for media that caregivers can rely on and enjoy themselves (when no one is looking of course!). iQ Kids Radio is a safe, entertaining, and fun way to learn, listen, laugh – and much more.
This educational effort combines age-appropriate content from multiple disciplines – literacy, science, music, geography and more – into shows like Storytelling, Language Lessons, Music Appreciation, Children’s Literature, Science, and Youth Voices. In addition, iQ Kids Radio features music from diverse genres, including music performed by kids themselves.
You can also listen to iQ Kids Radio--and check the website--for exclusive reports from the iQ Kids Radio Corps, who will be calling in stories from the field, sending in reports about what’s happening in their neighborhoods, and writing weekly blog posts. They’re working hard to keep the Kids in iQ Kids Radio.
iQ Kids Radio is available online and over TuneIn 24 hours a day, 7 days each week. The schedule is designed to feature just the right music and offerings at just the right times. We hope you’ll join us each week to listen, imaginatively.
