What is This?
Hey, good question. We aren't on the radio dial but even better...we're online 24/7 whenever you want to listen. This is a podcast site, the first to be 100% dedicated and invested in the Chippewa Valley.
Our Mission and Objective
Provide a place for people to go beyond "sound bites" and media clips to really dig deep into what is happening in the area. This includes both serious topics but also the good and silly. Not only discussion of city policies, but also promotion of local events, fundraisers and oft-forgotten and taken for granted happenings.
Making Podcasting Easy
We are striving to be the CENTRAL SPOT for all local podcasts. There are many businesses and individuals in the area who currently do their own podcast. Did you know that? We bet you didn't.
It's our mission to make this the spot people gravitate towards to listen to podcasts created and developed right here in the Chippewa Valley.
Our Current Line-Up
This site was launched in the spring of 2019 as an all-new media platform in the Chippewa Valley. There is a "desert" in terms of local issues and discussion in area media. No area radio station has a daily local-affairs program and while area newspaper and television outlets do an admirable job bringing the issues to the public, the citizenry has no place to massage and deepen their opinions.
Thus, our "Talk of the Town" program was launched as our 'flagship' podcast. This podcast drops three-days a week, discussing local issues.
The idea isn't for us to make you think a certain way, but instead to develop and deepen your own idea concerning a local issue.
Eau Claire Hometown Media was created in the spring of 2019 by Scott Montesano. with the goal if providing local news, local discussion and local entertainment.
100% of the Eau Claire Hometown Media podcasts are focused on Eau Claire and the general Chippewa Valley area.
