Between The Lines

Between The Lines History
"Since 1991, non-commercial, listener-supported WPKN Radio in Bridgeport, Connecticut (http://www.wpkn.org/) has produced a weekly, award-winning public affairs show called Between the Lines. A four-time winner of the Connecticut Associated Press Broadcast Award for Best Feature in the non-commercial category, this syndicated, half-hour program provides a platform for individuals and spokespersons from progressive organizations generally ignored or marginalized by the mainstream media. Between the Lines covers a wide range of political, economic and social topics.
Each program begins with a five-minute summary of some of the week's under- reported news stories gathered from the alternative press. This summary is followed by three five-minute interview segments focusing on significant international, national and regional issues..."
Our Goal is to Encourage Activism
"Between the Lines offers our audience timely information on how to become active on the issues featured on each week's program.
Every interview segment includes phone numbers and Web sites to facilitate contact between listeners and activist groups, that are taking a stand on critical issues of the day.
Our site also offers text summaries, transcripts of selected interviews and audio archives of BTL programs, and links to additional resources..."
