On The Ground Radio Show

On The Ground Radio Show On The Ground: Voices of Resistance, Fri. 10 AM ET, 89.3 FM, Wash, DC. Streaming: www.wpfw.org. Archive: www.onthegroundshow.org. Esther Iverem, ringleader
(8)

WASHINGTON, DC and cities and towns across the United States are places of activism. For example, at least 400 students were arrested outside the White House protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline. But you wouldn’t know about this activism based on what is covered in the corporate media. Even so-called progressive cable news outlets tend to focus just on the jockeying of electoral politics. “On the Ground” counters this trend by giving a voice to the voiceless. The weekly hour hosted by Esther Iverem covers social justice activism, with a special emphasis on sustainable living, the environment, economics, labor and the left edge of culture and media. The show airs every Friday, 10-11 am, on 89.3 FM, WPFW Pacifica Radio, in the Washington, D.C. DMV area and also reaches into portions of Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The show also streams live at www.wpfwfm.org and is archived there for at least three months. The website for the show, www.onthegroundshow.org includes a permanent audio archive of the show.

On the Ground: Voices of Resistance from the Nation’s Capital on Pacifica Radio and www.onthegroundshow.org

WASHINGTON, DC, the belly of the beast of international military and corporate power, is also a place of activism. It is where we come to speak truth to power in the streets and in the halls and assemblies of power. But you won’t hear these voices on corporate media. Even so-called progressive cable news outlets focus instead on the jockeying of electoral politics with a distinct neoliberal bias.

“On the Ground: Voices of Resistance from the Nation’s Capital” counters this trend by giving a voice to the voiceless 99 percent at the heart of American empire. The award-winning, weekly hour, produced and hosted by Esther Iverem, covers social justice activism about local, national and international issues, with a special emphasis on militarization and war, the police state, the corporate state, environmental justice and the left edge of culture and media. “On the Ground” premiered on May Day, May 1, 2014 on WPFW 89.3 Pacifica Radio in Washington, DC and is heard on two dozen stations across the United States.

The show airs Fridays 10-11am EST on 89.3 FM, WPFW Pacifica Radio, in the Washington, D.C. DMV area, noon on WRFG 89.3 FM in Atlanta and 5pm on WBAI, 99.5 FM in New York and dozens of other Pacifica stations Our website, www.onthegroundshow.org, includes a permanent audio archive of the show.

Esther, I was listening to the archive of your show on WBAI's webstite and would like to take advantage of your offer of a copy of Dr. Horne's new book to accompany a donation to WBAI. Is this offer still available, and how should I donate to obtain the book?
I LOVE THE SUNDAY PROGRAMING! EVEN THOUGH THEY CUTE SOME OF THE BEST PROGRAMERS.
Dr. Ambrose I. Lane Sr. was the very reason I started supporting this radio station, than Mr. Tom Porter I. introduced me to Dr. Gerald Horne not Gerald! Margaret Prescod respected him as Dr. Horne, Iverem you may not respect you and that manor but they worked hard for that label. There was another program Dr. Carr did not remember because of you that Dr. Gerald was not Gerald in a important conversation.
You have one of the most hard working people on wpfw - MS, Parisa Norouzi / Roach Brown / Margaret Prescod are some of the hardest working people on wpfw.
If Journalism was dependable, these tortured souls would not be forgotten victims of a covert fascist killing machine.
