Tune in to Media Reform and MAIN at 4:30 with MAIN executive director Wally Bowen and host Chop Fisher. Today, we will discuss Mr. Bowen’s Mountain Express commentary on how the local government is falling short in supporting public access, the media’s role in the whole Shirley Sherrod affair, and get updates on the ongoing fight to save our broadband and internet rights from the major carriers and government opposition. Join us today and every Friday for Media Reform and MAIN with MAIN executive director Wally Bowen on MAIN-FM.
MAIN-FM is opening our doors to the public Monday, July 19th thru Sunday, 26th from 12:00pm to 6:00pm daily. As YOUR community media network, we at MAIN and MAIN-FM want to get to know you, the members of the very community that supports our work and assists us in achieving our media reform goals, such as full-scale broadband adoption and privacy protection, to name a few.
It’s an important part of MAIN’s mission to be engaged within the WNC community and to make you feel welcome to explore our activities, mission and goals.
The Open House overlaps with Bele Chere festival, so if you’re planning on heading downtown over the weekend, please make a point of dropping by the radio station at 75 Haywood Rd. It’s right next to the Haywood stage and Civic Center!
Meet some of our staff members and valued volunteers, and learn how you can transfer more of your dollars out of the bulging pockets of monolithic corporate titans, and back into the local economy by subscribing to MAIN’s internet services.
We look forward to meeting you, the community, and thank you for your ongoing support of MAIN.
