Democracy Now! Comes to Rochester

The folks at Metro Justice have scored a victory for independent news in Rochester.  After a long fight, they’ve finally gotten Democracy Now on the air on 950AM, the same channel as Air America.  That’s every weeknight between the hours of 8 and 9pm.

They’re holding a rally to celebrate the victory and also to recognize WROC General Manager Mike Doyle for his leadership in listening to the concerns of the citizens of Rochester.  It’s Monday, June 11th at noon, though the invitation I got doesn’t mention where.  Go check it out if you don’t have to work.
