Democracy Now! A daily independent global News Hour
With Amy Goodman & Juan González
Democracy Now!, is an international, independent, daily news hour, hosted by award-winning journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. By featuring a rich diversity of voices often ignored by the corporate media, Democracy Now! presents in-depth information, historical perspectives, and substantive public debate on the most pressing issues of the day.
What began in 1996 as a daily election program on a dozen community radio stations has rapidly grown into the largest public media collaboration in North America. Democracy Now! is broadcast in English and in Spanish on more than 1,000 radio and television stations across the country. The program airs on Pacifica, NPR stations, low power FM, College and Community Radio stations as well as Public Access TV and PBS stations, and on both TV satellite networks -- DISH Network channel 9415 Free Speech TV, 9410 Link TV, and on Direct TV channel 375.
The program -- in audio, video and transcript form -- is also available in its entirety on the internet. Time Magazine named Democracy Now! its “Pick of the Podcasts,” along with NBC’s Meet the Press.
Democracy Now! continues to attract public awareness and professional recognition for its work. As a growing number of authors introduce their books on the program, Crain’s cited Democracy Now! for propelling political books onto bestseller lists. In the past year, Democracy Now! was featured in O Magazine, Le Monde diplomatique, The Washington Post, and The International Herald Tribune.
Democracy Now! accepts no advertising income, corporate underwriting, or government funding. The program has grown, and maintained its editorial independence through the generous support of its dedicated audience and committed donors.
