Starting on Monday, December 9th, WGDR’s flagship syndicated world news program, Democracy Now!, will move from its long running 10am slot, to its live airing during drive-time at 8am. The reasons for the move are many, but chief among them is our aim to serve listeners more effectively with live, breaking world news on WGDR and WGDH.
In addition to this move, WGDR has replaced the second daily airing of Democracy Now! at 6:30pm with the Thom Hartmann Program, offering listeners the only daily broadcast in VT of this hugely popular talk news program.
WGDR’s signature, daily local Public Affairs block, currently airing at 8:30am, will now begin at 9am.
In alignment with the station’s new commitment to serving the local listening community, listeners will find a local news magazine on WGDR starting end of January/beginning of February 2014. Most likely positioned midday on Fridays, this station production will feature weekly local news for Central Vermont and state wide. Stay tuned for final details on broadcast times.
