Democracy Now! expands to two-hours during party conventions

Breaking With Convention: War, Peace and the Presidency

Democracy Now! will expand to a two-hour broadcast during the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Amy Goodman and the Democracy Now! crew will travel to Denver and St. Paul to cover the 2008 conventions from the ground.

DNC two-hour broadcasts: August 25th–29th
RNC two-hour broadcasts: September 1st–5th

Please contact your local radio or TV station for local expanded listings,
or watch/listen to the whole broadcast on

Volunteer to spread the word about Democracy Now! during the RNC and DNC:

Democracy Now! is looking for volunteers to help spread the word about the show and the expanded two-hour broadcast during the conventions. If you live in Denver or St. Paul or just plan on attending the conventions and want to help out, please email

Volunteer as a Cameraperson:

Democracy Now! is also looking for volunteer camerapeople with their own equipment during both the DNC and RNC. If you are available please email:

Volunteer as a Transcriber:

As you know we transcribe every show on our website everyday, but with the two-hour expansion we need more help. DN! is looking for volunteers to transcribe 15-minute segments right after the show. Note that transcribers do not need to be in Denver or St. Paul and can help from anywhere. If you are available please email:
