The Union Edge

Since 2008, The Union Edge has led robust but respectful discussions on issues that affect working and middle-class families – education, voting, health care, employment rights, community activism and more. Host Charles Showalter and co-hosts Angela Baughman and Brittany Sheets interview citizen group leaders, international union presidents, labor historians, environmental experts, activists and reporters of all kinds, discussing breaking news and top issues that impact day to day life. The Union Edge reaches across the table and political aisle to find common ground and appeal to labor, progressives, and moderates, bringing together both young and old in solidarity.

Workers Independent News (WIN)

Workers Independent News (WIN) is focused on the issues and concerns of working people. As a news service, WIN is devoted to bringing the voices of workers, their families, communities and organizations to the widest public possible, using all means of electronic media. WIN packages news for distribution to radio stations, Internet radio, websites, for podcast and print publication.

WIN’s mission is to bring balance to news coverage by providing news and features focusing on:

Workers Independent News reaches 1,000,000 people on over 200 radio stations each weekday. WIN can also distribute news via any of 30 statewide radio networks. By placing a daily newscast on these networks, we can reach the key demographics that we must win to our point of view. These networks reach smaller towns and suburban areas, in addition to the cities. They are the trusted hometown stations that local people tune into daily.

Workers Independent News is a resource for individual unions!
When WIN does a story about a union, we often provide that organization with an audio clip & text for further distribution to their members, or to the press. In addition, WIN offers training and assistance to unions and community-based organizations in the technical aspects of reporting, radio production and media relations.
