'Democracy Now' receives Monday through Friday public TV time slot

Amy Goodman's independent national daily news program, "Democracy Now!" will be broadcast at 10 p.m. Monday through Friday on Southern Oregon Public Television Channel 21 beginning Jan. 4, SOPTV executives say.

Mark Stanislawski, SOPTV president and chief executive officer, said viewer demand for the show and the station's goal to offer more public affairs programming prompted the decision.

"Democracy Now!" is on the air at 1 a.m. on Channel 8 and at 7:30 a.m. on Channel 21, but some viewers had complained that they were missing the broadcast because of the early hours. The 10 p.m. broadcast will be an addition to the times already available and will be part of a public affairs block between 6 and 11 p.m.
