Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 1,400 public television and radio stations worldwide, including Lincoln’s long-running community radio station, KZUM. For close to 15 years, KZUM has brought listeners this independent lens on national and international news, every weekday at noon. It is one of KZUM’s most listened-to programs.
“The program has grown over the years to become one of the most supported shows during KZUM’s fund drives — a clear indication that listeners continue to place a high value on independent media,” said KZUM Program Director Ryan Evans..
The talk and book signing event at The Rococo will highlight the importance of noncommercial media like KZUM and Democracy Now!, and its power to educate and build community. There will also be a cocktail hour for VIP ticket holders to include complimentary refreshments by Yes Chef Catering, a copy of Goodman’s latest book, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America (courtesy of Indigo Bridge Books) and a meet and greet with Goodman.
Live music will be performed by the Marz House Band. All proceeds will benefit KZUM.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award....
