Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, author, and host and executive producer of the daily, independent global news hour Democracy Now! which airs on more than 1,200 public television and radio stations worldwide. Goodman has interviewed several Lannan guests including Noam Chomsky, Eduardo Galeano, and Robert Fisk.
Goodman has also won numerous awards for the radio documentary she co-produced with journalist Allan Nairn, “MASSACRE: The Story of East Timor,” including the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Silver Baton, the Armstrong Award, the Radio/Television News Directors Award, as well as awards from AP, UPI, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
In 1991 Goodman and Nairn survived a massacre in East Timor in which Indonesian soldiers gunned down more than 250 Timorese. The Indonesian military banned them from returning. Goodman twice attempted to re-enter East Timor to cover the historic referendum on self-determination. Citing her name on an army blacklist, the Indonesian regime deported her both times.
Goodman has reported from Israel and the Occupied territories, Cuba, Mexico, Haiti and this year became the first journalist ever to interview the jailed U.S. citizen Lori Berenson, serving a life sentence in Peru. Goodman also recently broadcast the first U.S. radio interview with imprisoned East Timor rebel leader Xanana Gusmao. In addition to her daily radio shows, Goodman speaks around the country on university campuses, as well as to human rights, church and community groups about media activism. She also runs workshops at community radio stations on grassroots coverage.
Her newest book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, written with Denis Moynihan, gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent.
Democracy Now! airs locally on KSFR 101.1FM Monday-Friday from 6-7am and from 3-4pm, on KUNM 90.7FM Monday-Friday from 4-5pm, and on Free Speech TV, channel 9415 of the DISH Network Monday-Friday at 6am, 5pm, and 10pm.
