Help a January campaign to put Democracy Now! on WBEZ

Posted by Mitchell - January 27, 2004 (entry 139)

Pete Caithamer is working to get Democracy Now! on the air. He needs our help.

Democracy Now! is a daily one-hour news show which actually covers the news without the spin factor. (You can learn more about Democracy Now! at and listen to any show aired since its inception in 1996 at its archives.)

Peter has asked WBEZ, an NPR affiliate in Chicago, to pick up the show. Ron Jones, the News Manager at WBEZ, will be making a decision on Peter's request within the next few days. We need to call him and ask him to put Democracy Now! on WBEZ and in a prime time slot!

You can reach Mr. Jones directly at (312) 948-4647.

Mr. Caithamer is suggesting that volunteers in Dupage county might want to call Mary Pat Larue (630) 942-3708 at WDCB, an NPR affiliate located at the College of DuPage and request that they start airing Democracy Now!
