Political Ads on Commercial Television
Candace Clement, Campaign Coordinator, Free Press
The Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center this week is hosting the 2012 Grassroots Radio Conference. It’s an opportunity for community radio stations to gather and discuss a variety of issues. WILL is a media partner for the conference. Another key organization in the endeavor is the media reform organization Free Press. Candace Clement manages Free Press’s initiatives on community media, and advises on the group’s efforts to expand support for public media. In her role with Free Press, she has also advocated for greater transparency when it comes to commercial TV stations’ public files. She'll tell us about those efforts.
