Help get Democracy Now! on WYCC TV, Chicago channel 20

Posted by Mitchell - August 29, 2010 (entry 660)

Chicago Media Action has worked for years with the staff of the daily radio and TV news program Democracy Now!. We've had success over the years in widening the reach of the show and of independent media more generally, and members of CMA have played roles in helping to get Democracy Now! on WZRD radio, on CAN TV, and on ECTV in Evanston. We've also been working on a campaign (now in its sixth year) to get Democracy Now! on WBEZ, Chicago Public Radio (any time now, Torey).

And since May, we've been working on a new campaign to bring the show to one of Chicago's PBS channels, WYCC Channel 20. We had success in a petition that launched at the 2010 Chicago Green Festival that was met with success, and we're now taking the campaign online -- with this petition on The Petition Site and with a print copy in PDF format.
