Forward Forum loses time slot for now; but it will live on!

Sunday, Sept. 6th represented the last scheduled day of broadcast for "Forward Forum," an award-winning progressive talk and public affairs show which began broadcasting in January of 2005. An active search is now underway for a new home for the broadcast. Please watch this space for developments.

In the meantime, Forward Forum host John Quinlan will continue his two decade-long commitment as a volunteer broadcast at WORT-FM, 89.9 FM, Madison's nationally-renowned listener-sponsored station. This includes serving as a guest host, and will result in his producing some special projects.

That new tradition begins on Monday, Sept. 7th, at 6:30pm, when he will host and produce a special Labor Day edition of "In Our Backyard," focusing on Immigrants Workers and Immigrants Rights developments along the US-Mexican border. This special is made possible, in large part, to the reporting and activism of Leila Pine and Craig McComb, a Madison couple who live part of the year in Tucson.

Also, although there will be a slight delay, archived versions of our August 30th and Sept. 6th Forward Forum shows (see below) will be available shortly.

If you're on Facebook, please see this "Facebook Friends of Forward Forum" page for information on how you can help us make the case that will bring Forward Forum back on the air. If you're not on Facebook, please drop me a line at ForwardForum@aol.com , and I'll be glad to send you some simple instructions on how you can sign onto a petition, or write a quick note of support, toward those same ends.

Thanks to all who have offered their support to this program over the years, and in recent days. More on the evolving mission of Forward Forum as events warrant....

  1. love to see this discussion! It’s great to see you all working through the issues and also, it’s great to see recommendations for testing. In the end, it’s what your actual users do and prefer hat should be your biggest driver in making these decisions.

  3. The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.
