Announcement:  Economic Update is moving to 30 minutes
Democracy at Work is pleased to announce a change in the format of our program Economic Update with Richard D. Wolff from 60 to 30 minutes.  For the last 7 years, the 60-minute format has worked well for our audience, and us, and we have successfully managed to deliver a new show each week with hardly any interruption in schedule. 
By streamlining our program, we expect to deliver a more focused and impactful message to our loyal, longtime listeners, as well as satisfy a growing demand for the type of perspectives Professor Wolff provides. We believe the new format will be well received and increase engagement with our audience.
The first 30-minute show will be distributed to radio stations on June 14, 2018.  Please be sure to make the necessary adjustments to your schedules.
Note that the show's format will still have short updates for the first half of the program, and interviews when possible during the second half. 
Thank you.
The Democracy at Work Team
