Pre-FCC Hearing Radio Show in Minneapolis on Aug 16

Earlier, I posted info on the FCC public hearing (in Minneapolis!) on August 19. Twin Cities community radio KFAI, is hosting a discussion on the hearing and likely topics on August 16. It should be a good opportunity to bone up on topics and/or get a sneak preview of the actual hearing.

Here’s the announcemetn on the program:

TruthToTell’s ANDY DRISCOLL and LYNNELL MICKELSEN explore the issues and testimony Minnesota media justice types will deliver to Federal Communications Commissioners Michael Copps and Mignon Clyburn at a hearing on the future of the Internet.

STEVE RENDEROS – Media Justice Coordinator, Main Street Project
MARGARET KAPLAN – Operations Director, MN Center for Neighborhood Organizing (CURA)
CHAKA MKALI – Director of Organizing and Community Building, Hope Community, Minneapolis
LAURA WATERMAN WITTSTOCK – Author, Consultant, Co-Producer/Host – First Person Radio (KFAI)
