Austin, TX – April 29, 2010 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) – On Wednesday, April 28, WomensRadio Network launched "Keeping Up with Gen Y", a unique radio show that offers discussions, interviews, and commentary about important issues of the day from the perspective of Generation Y, typically defined as 18-to 30-year-olds. 

Aimed at all generations interested in learning about and inspiring young people, this series features professionals, experts, researchers, and members of Generation Y who share insights and experiences about the topics on the minds of today's young adults. 

The show, which will air new episodes every Wednesday on the online network, is hosted by Tamara Bell, editor in chief of Y Gen Out Loud, an online news site for Generation Y to learn about and discuss national, political and public policy issues. 

"This is a unique opportunity," said Bell, who is also a lecturer at The University of Texas at Austin. "Together with the team at WomensRadio, we've created a show specifically for the younger generation to learn and talk about the issues that affect them on a daily basis." 

The first episode, titled "Engaging Generation Y in Causes: How nonprofits can use technology to recruit Gen Y donors and volunteers," features David J. Neff, creator, co-founder and director of "Lights, Camera, Help," a nonprofit organization based in Austin, Texas, which is dedicated to encouraging nonprofits and cause-driven organizations across the globe to use film and video to tell their stories. 

Neff joins "Keeping Up with Gen Y" to talk about how nonprofits and cause-driven organizations can attract Generation Y as active donors and volunteers using digital media and technology to engage them in their mission. 

The April 28 show can be found at http://www.womensradio.com/articles/Engaging-Generation-Y-in-Causes/5004.html.

About WomensRadio Network:
The WomensRadio Network started over 13 years ago with a powerful mission to create new and integrate existing media to give women a larger voice over the greatest geographic area, for the purpose of creating balance and greater prosperity for all. By providing a "platform" or vehicle for women to have this larger voice, women can gain credence with their expertise and points of view. The strength of their ideas, together with their ability to reach a much larger audience, will help to create communication bridges to a more balanced world. By making this effort from the beginnings of "streaming" on the Web, WomensRadio Network has gained significant experience, integrating new and old broadcasting expertise, as well as building community.
