This episode of Words of Freedom welcomes to the program Shari Bernson, Membership Director and Executive Producer at KBDI-TV, Channel 12 in Denver Colorado. KBDI has taken bold steps in recent months with historic airings of 9-11 Press for Truth on June 3 as well as the August 15th, 2009 airing of 9-11 Blueprint for Truth. These fund raisers for the Denver PBS television station included a screening of these excellent documentaries along with in studio interviews with Kyle Hence, Ray Nowosielski, 9-11 family member Bob McIlvaine, and Richard Gage, AIA with members of Colorado 9-11 Visibility who were on hand answering phones.
Shari is a nationally recognized producer with over 20 years-combined experience in the television, entertainment and media. She has been a leader in her field and has raised over $17 million dollars for public television. Shari is also an on-air talent for KBDI and serves as the main host during these historic airings.
This interview contains excerpts from a longer interview and was broadcast on KRFC 88.9 FM in Fort Collins Colorado on August 3rd and again on August 17th, 2009. We think this program provides a valuable tool for 9-11 activists to take to the PBS stations in their area to better demonstrate the positive experiences of KBDI after making the decision to air programming with September 11th content. This interview features a behind the scenes look at some of the decision making processes which went into selecting these documentaries for airing, how 9-11 Press for Truth was received by the public, the role of the local 9-11 group, and the groundswell of support from the Colorado community and indeed from around the world.
