BAM! Radio Network (For Educators)
Description: BAM! Radio Network—Where 15,000+ Educators Share What Works. BAM! is an acronym for
“body and mind.” BAM! Radio began in 2007 as a single online radio program called Body, Mind and Child,
created to bring parents the latest insights and wisdom from the leading experts in the fields of early
childhood education, physical education/motor development, play research, child development, and the
neurosciences. In late 2008, programming expanded to serve a broader slice of the education community.
Today, BAM! Radio is the largest education radio network in the world offering programming from the nation’s
top education organizations and thought leaders, reaching a wide audience of people passionately committed
to quality education.
What most distinguishes BAM Radio Network are the people involved: “On-air” hosts are the executive
directors of the most respected education associations in the country and passionate experienced classroom
teachers, guests are leading experts, advocates and journalists in education, and programming is produced by
an Emmy-winning team.
