Midterm Election Coverage

(Rochester, NY) - WXXI News’ coverage of the midterm elections begins in September with two special series. The first is America on the Line, which kicks off September 10 at 8 p.m. The series builds on Indivisible, public radio’s massive national convening that spanned the first 100 days of the Trump administration. An all-star team of analysts, strategists and reporters will answer the question: What happened today, and why? America on the Line airs Monday through Thursday at 8 p.m. from September 10 through November 8.

The Democracy Test from Truth, Politics and Power is the second series, airing Saturdays at 3 p.m. September 22 through October 27. Longtime Talk of the Nation host Neal Conan and political historian Heather Richardson Cox explore the state of our democracy with a series of six new programs. Neal and Heather, along with their guests, will examine what’s unique in this moment of our nation’s history, what brought us here, and what it would take to emerge with a stronger understanding and expression of our democratic ideals. Please note: AM 1370 will preempt Ted Radio Hour during this time period.
