In the 1980s, Bowen left a job as a PR person for the University of North Carolina at Asheville and started a media-literacy advocacy group. In the 1990s he started one of the first-ever local online news services in MAIN. And now his not-profit operates a low-power FM station.

On April 2, 2008, Bowen talked with the Media Giraffe Project about his odyssey as a progressive media activist.  You can listen to streaming audio (60 minutes) by clicking on the carat on the bar below:
