As a loyal listener of KPCC, you know what public radio sounds like. Today, we are launching a new blog to give you an idea what public radio can look like.

This is something new: A blog of visual journalism from a radio station, which we call AudioVision.

The blog will showcase KPCC's brand of great visual storytelling. You can expect to find these things on AudioVision:

  • Compelling images from our team of talented visual journalists that tell the stories about Southern California that matter to the people of Southern California.
  • Curated slideshows of photos and videos produced by artists and visual storytellers from around our region that illuminate life in this special place
  • The best images and video from you, our audience, as well as a guide to the best ways to enrich your life through social and mobile photography on Instagram and beyond.
  • The best videos about Southern California and our lives here today.

AudioVision is hosted by our visual team, Grant Slater, Mae Ryan and Maya Sugarman.

You can follow AudioVision on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook for a steady stream of visual delight and extras that didn't make their way onto the site.

If you have Instagram, you can follow KPCC where we post only the best from behind the scenes, our daily photo coverage and where we share your photos, too.

We always want to see your images. If you take a picture with your phone and post it to Instagram, just tag it #KPCC and we'll find it.

For you serious photographers, we have a Flickr group where you can submit your beautiful images of Southern California. Please share them with us.
