Workers Independent News

DME is the organization behind one of the nation’s longest running and most far-reaching working family focused radio programs, Workers Independent News (WIN). DME has been producing WIN since 2002 and has expanded it from being solely a 3-minute headline broadcast to becoming a multimedia news service heard by more than 1 million listeners each day. In 2011, DME started production of our first one-hour long news/talk program, The People’s Mic with Doug Cunningham which can be heard in Madison and Wausau, Wisconsin, as well as online at iheartradio.com. You can find out more about our productions below: WIN – The Nationwide Voice Of Working Families And Their Unions Workers Independent News (WIN) is focused on the issues and concerns of working people. As a news service, WIN is devoted to bringing the voices of workers, their families, communities and organizations to the widest public possible, using all means of electronic media. WIN packages news for distribution to radio stations, Internet radio, websites, for podcast and print publication. WIN’s mission is to bring balance to news coverage by providing news and features focusing on: Organizing and bargaining for workplace democracy Workplace issues: safety, privacy, discrimination Coalition campaigns for a living wage and other goals Unions in communities and the political arena Workforce issues: immigrant and undocumented workers, contingent and part-time workers Workers Independent News reaches 1,000,000 people on over 200 radio stations each weekday. WIN can also distribute news via any of 30 statewide radio networks. By placing a daily newscast on these networks, we can reach the key demographics that we must win to our point of view. These networks reach smaller towns and suburban areas, in addition to the cities. They are the trusted hometown stations that local people tune into daily. Workers Independent News is a resource for individual unions! When WIN does a story about a union, we often provide that organization with an audio clip & text for further distribution to their members, or to the press. In addition, WIN offers training and assistance to unions and community-based organizations in the technical aspects of reporting, radio production and media relations.
