In 1996, Amy Goodman began hosting Democracy Now! on the Pacifica Radio Network to focus on issues and movements that are often ignored by much of the media. Today Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the US, broadcasting on over 1400 public television and radio stations around the world — with millions accessing it online at democracynow.org.
For most of those twenty years, Democracy Now! has had a daily home on KCSB-FM 91.9, which is proud to welcome Amy back to the UCSB campus for a 730pm lecture in UCSB’s Corwin Pavilion. Doors open at 7pm.
In their new book, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America (Simon & Schuster), Amy, along with her journalist brother, David Goodman, and co-author Denis Moynihan, share stories of the whistleblowers, the organizers, and the protesters, among others, who have brought about extraordinary change.
