Here at WORT we are proud of our role as a completely independent media institution in south central Wisconsin. We will continue to provide greatly needed working-peoples’ perspectives on an array of subjects that define these momentous times. Indeed is the corporate-owned “mainstream media” really mainstream anymore? Whose news, opinions and concerns do they air?
In the early 1970s WORT‘s founders realized that a community radio station was needed in Madison to provide vital coverage for the anti-war and counterculture movements. How could they have known that almost 40 years later WORT would be perfectly positioned to cover the ongoing tumult at the Capitol? Or that we would be airing syndicated programming like Democracy Now! that is the antidote to corporate-controlled news?
Very encouraging to know that WORT continues its fine and indispensable work in these hard times, with more than enough serious dangers but also promise, as the people of Wisconsin have shown.Noam Chomsky
