Formatted abstract
This article investigates the way in which one particular talk radio program, Mornings with Madonna King, deploys strategies that seem to address some of the criticisms levelled at conventional news formats in their ability to engage people as citizens.

Finally, the article examines how the institutional practices of radio production and consumption constrain this democratic potential
