ITHACA -- Nationally-syndicated progressive talk show host Thom Hartmann will broadcast his three-hour program live from Ithaca later this year. Local affiliate Progressive Talk 1470 WNYY made the announcement today.
Hartmann will host the show from the Emerson Suites at Ithaca College on Friday, September 25. The show airs live from noon to 3pm. Tickets to watch the broadcast are free. For now, they're being offered only to listeners who signed up for the station's "Progressive Team" e-mail updates -- but they'll soon be available to the general public through the station's website at 1470wnyy.com.
According to his bio on the station website, Hartmann was named one of talk radio's “100 Heavy Hitters” by Talkers Magazine, and "Top Ten New Voices in Talk Radio" for 2004 by Radio Ink.
