Some of you reading this might have been at the meeting at WTTW's studios.
To get everyone else up to speed: A group of more than 30 individuals--including members of Chicago Media Action which helped serve to coordinate matters--met with Randy King and two of his staff at WTTW.
This group--named the "We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming Coalition", or the "We Interrupt" Coalition for short--gave WTTW a proposal to hold a series of community forums on various topics, to be accompanied by some outstanding pre-made documentaries.
The meeting ran for nearly an hour and a half, which was moderated by yours truly. In the end, despite many ups and downs during the meeting, we have agreed to a second meeting with WTTW next week (perhaps Wednesday or Thursday) to discuss specific proposals and details regarding one or more shows.
If you have *specific* ideas for proposals for a forum or series of forums--guests, a host or hosts, individuals, topics of discussion, a structure for the event, anything, please send e-mail with your suggestions to email@example.com.
