On Monday December 3rd, host John Quinlan spoke with a panel of guests on the future of local radio talk and news in Madison.
Midwest Family Broadcasting chose to lay off their news and talk staff at the radio station WTDY in Madison late in the day before Thanksgiving. The panel John brought together discussed efforts to restore more local progressive programming to the air, and to find longtime local radio personality John “Sly” Sylvester another home in local radio. The studio guests included former WTDY News Reporter Dylan Brogan, News Director Amy Barrilleaux, and News Anchor Deana Wright. John also spoke to Mike Dickman from the group Give Sly the Mic and media reform activist Barbara Wright. Former WTDY Station Manager Glen Gardner also joined John by phone from Boston.
