Subject:   [september17discuss] media request for Upstate NY occupier
 

Anyone know someone who fits this description that I can connect with them?  Chris chrisnysa@gmail.com 917 847 3635

 

I host a daily radio show that runs on 8 stations in Upstate NY (Geneva, Auburn, Finger Lakes, Elmira, Corning, Hornell, Rochester, Livingston County) from 2 – 3 pm.  Our audience is rural/conservative/libertarian and I’m finding a high level of interest in Occupy Wall Street.  The “true” unemployment rate (government numbers plus those who have given up and grossly underemployed) in our listening area is north of 20 percent, and people have lost confidence in both Democrat (Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, local congress members) and Republican (state legislators, some of the congress members) since for 30 years they have been making promises but not doing anything to make the region more economically strong.

 

We would like to schedule one of the leaders of Occupy Wall Street – preferably someone from Upstate NY – to come onto the show for an 8 minute segment on Wed or Friday this week between 2:12 pm – 2:20pm.  If you can schedule someone please let me know and we’ll supply call-in information.
