Between The Lines is a weekly syndicated half-hour news magazine featuring progressive perspectives on national and international political, economic and social issues.

Because Between The Lines is independent of all publications, media networks or political parties, we are able to bring a diversity of voices to the airwaves. This award-winning program provides a platform for individuals and organizations generally ignored or marginalized in corporate media.

Each week, Between The Lines features:
▪   A five-minute summary of some of the week’s under-reported news stories gathered from the alternative press and other sources.
▪   Three in-depth interview segments focusing on significant international, national and regional issues.

Our production staff includes journalists and community activists who have a passion for disseminating information and viewpoints that all too rarely reach the public. Our producers and writers are affiliated with community and professional media and non-governmental organizations. They contribute to regional and national media.
