Yowei got her start in radio by teaching youth media, when she was a young person herself. She is ever grateful to her parents for letting her report on their obsession with tango dancing. They were very perplexed when she won a Third Coast Honorable Mention: Best Documentary Award for the story.


Re:sound's Gwen Macsai hosts Best of the Best: The 2012 Third Coast Festival Broadcast, showcasing the best radio stories of the year - winners of the 2012 TC / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.


Every other fall, the Third Coast stretches its wings, embraces a film festival model (minus the popcorn - too noisy) and presents the Third Coast Filmless Festival - a celebration of sound, story, and the art of listening.


The 2017 Third Coast/RHDF Competition awards the following categories: Best Documentary (Gold, Silver, Bronze, Honorable Mention and Directors' Choice), Best New Artist, Radio Impact, Best News Feature, Skylarking and Best Foreign Language.
