Pro-labor radio program broadcasting in Lehigh Valley

REGION, April 15th- Stephen Crockett, representative for the American Income Life Insurance, a unionized company, announced his pro-labor, Democratic Talk Radio program can be heard in the Lehigh Valley.

Mr. Crockett, resides in Delaware, but often attends union events throughout the Lehigh Valley, and is host of the “Democratic Talk Radio” program, that until recently could only be heard by the internet or the web-site: http://www.DemocraticTalkRadio.com.

The progressive talk radio program went on the air in the Lehigh Valley on April 3rd and will be broadcast every Thursday from 8:05 am to 9:00 am on WGPA SUNNY 1100AM in Bethlehem. “The program is pro-union, and should be enjoyed by union members,” said Mr. Crockett.

The program will feature book authors, talk show hosts, journalists, labor leaders, office-holders, political candidates, policy experts, political activists and more as guests.

Mr. Crockett stated the mainstream media does a poor job of covering news events involving the labor community. He said the mainstream media neglects covering news events about what labor is thinking and cares about.

“The radio program is about us, union members, activists and political candidates that care about labor. You won’t hear any anti-union talk on my program,” said Mr. Crockett.

The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) Union Local 1174 in Allentown, sponsored the entire first four programs. “The support for the program by labor has been wonderful. Hopefully, we can keep the program going right-up until November.”

Labor unions can sponsor the entire one-hour radio program for $180.00 or buy spot advertising at $20.00 for a 30 second advertisement.

Mr. Crockett stated WGPA streams live on the internet and all shows will be archived on the Democratic Talk Radio Program archives page for downloading.

For more information about advertising or the program Mr. Crockett can be contacted at 443.907.2367 or by internet at midsouthcm@aol.com.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I actually reside in Maryland but my office is in the UAW Local 1183 hall at 698 Old Baltimore Pike, Newark, Delaware 19702. My business cards and most of my published writings use the office address which often creates a misunderstanding about my residence. My apologies to Mr. Tucker for not pointing out this situation in advance of the article. I am spending a couple of days a week in the Lehigh Valley and expect to eventually become a Pennsylvania resident.

I thank the Union News and Paul Tucker for being a GREAT resource for working Americans in Pennsylvania.
