The event was chosen as the “Pick of the Week” by the independent Tucson Weekly, in this article written by local journalism prof Hank Stephenson:

Connecting Indie-Media Dots

The article highlights ongoing struggles of Access Tucson to maintain its share of the cable franchise fees that are intended for public access TV, and also that KXCI had its best fund drive ever.

Democracy Now! will be broadcast from the studios of KUAT/Arizona Public Media Ch. 6, a PBS affiliate, on Monday Apr 27th.

DN! producer Nicole Salazar has joined the tour.
