The company that gave me my start in Sales several years ago has organized an "All Day On-Air And Online Flu Clinic" to be broadcast on the leading Talk Radio Station here in Buffalo, NY.
WBEN News Radio 930 AM will broadcast LIVE from 6am-6pm today so if you have some time to kill you might want to tune in online and listen to the debate.
There's no word as to which direction the discussion will bend (regardless of the Programming Schedule), but I'm hoping they present a truly fair and balanced report with local Health Officials and various Medical Experts.
There's a good chance they might do just that too, because I was surprised when they devoted entire shows to covering the recent demonstration and protest by New York State Health Care Professionals in Albany, NY in response to the new law that requires them to get vaccinated prior to November 30th, or run the risk of being fired.
Here's how WBEN's website is promoting this:
Your Vaccination Against Misinformation!
All day TODAY every local program on WBEN will concentrate on the traditional flu and the H1N1 virus, with guest experts, exclusive interviews and in-depth reports.
Buffalo's Early News: Pediatrician Gerald Lauria MD in studio 7-8am; In-Depth reports from the WBEN News Team
The Tom Bauerle Show: A frank and opinionated discussion about the flu vaccines.
Beach & Co.: An expert panel including Dr. Anthony Billitier, Erie County Health Commissioner and his staff.
Anyway, I thought I would let everyone know because you're not likely to get the same presentation from the national media even despite the fact that similar debates are occurring in other places like Western New York around this country.
I hope they take callers and allow them to present their honest questions and opinions on this matter. I also hope that these Hosts (truly some of the best in the biz!) tell it like it is, hold their Guests accountable, and do their best to inform their audience. Don't give me any Glenn Beck type stuff where you kinda-sorta admit there's good reason to be concerned, but then wrap things up by denying the truth and/or giving outright lies to the public.
I'll be tuning in as much as I can throughout the day because it's these local discussions that will provide us with a microcosm of how things will most likely go on a national scale when this all becomes front-and-center again like it was when it first emerged back in the Spring.
I wonder if we'll get any sense of how this might play out -- in line with our previous warnings, or in a completely different direction entirely? We'll see.
What We're Praying/Talking About
Our faith in action, or our small contribution in trying to apply what we're taught in Hebrews 5-6 and James 2:17-26 for the benefit of our dear brothers and sisters within the Body of Christ...
