Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman returns to Tucson for a talk and book signing. Goodman’s talk is a benefit for 91.3 KXCI Community Radio. During this 2016 election season, Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman, David Goodman and Denis Moynihan are on a North American speaking tour to mark the 20th anniversary of the daily, independent, global TV/Radio news hour with a new book titled Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America by Amy Goodman, with David Goodman and Denis Moynihan. Books will be available for purchase from Antigone Books.

In 1996, acclaimed independent journalist and bestselling author Amy Goodman began hosting a show on Pacifica Radio called Democracy Now! to cover the 1996 election. It was the only daily election news hour in public broadcasting, bringing voices and ideas not normally heard in the corporate media to the airwaves. The election ended, but demand for the show persisted, so Democracy Now! continued with its mission to give voice to those outside the mainstream.

Democracy Now! airs locally weekdays at noon on 91.3 KXCI Tucson.”
