About Heritage Radio Network

Welcome to Heritage Radio Network, the ultimate destination for savvy, entertaining, conversations about what’s going on in the culinary world. We’re an independent, member-supported, 501(c)(3) nonprofit radio station, broadcasting from two recycled shipping containers behind Roberta’s Pizza, a restaurant at the forefront of Brooklyn’s culinary renaissance. Our 40+ hosts invite the most influential, visionary people – from brewers and bartenders to pastry chefs, policy makers and more – to discuss today’s most vital issues. We cover food policy and agriculture, the restaurant scene, and everything to do with food and drink, as well as introduce you to today’s up-and-coming chefs and share compelling human interest stories, such as how the devastating hurricane Sandy affected food supplies in the New York area.

We believe that a small group of dedicated people can change the world one bite (or sound bite) at a time. Since 2009, we’ve earned a reputation as the best source for thought-provoking talk about food. You can listen to any of our episodes live – or as podcasts on demand – wherever you are, whenever you want, and always for free.

Heritage Radio Network’s goal is to be more than a radio station. We’re growing a community of eaters and thinkers making the world a more delicious place to live. We host events, networking sessions, and insightful panel discussions. Plus, we train high school and higher education students how to get involved and produce their own stories about food through our scholarship and internship programs.

Who are the people behind Heritage Radio Network?

HRN is supported by a group of innovative freelance staff, a team of talented interns, and an incredibly tight-knit and supportive food community in Brooklyn and beyond. The shows themselves are an enormous labor of love for our hosts, a diverse and highly regarded group of professionals. Currently they produce and record their weekly shows, unpaid. As a non-profit media outlet, we seek to give them the platform they deserve to help our listeners explore issues they care about.With a handful of staff and board members, we’re a small but mighty team wearing lots of hats.
