Regular FWIW readers know how generous Avy Meyers has been in allowing me to re-post the judicial candidate interviews he does for his North Town News Magazine program. Meyers wrote me today to ask that I remind candidates and their supporters that he has one regular taping date left on his schedule -- February 23 -- and that candidates wishing to get on the program before the primary (and, with very few exceptions, why would you need to go on after?) need to contact him as soon as possible (you can reach Meyers by email at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Meyers also asked me to remind candidates that he does sell ads for his print publication Jewish Chicago (there's an online edition, too) and the deadline for ad placement is fast approaching as well. He also mentioned that preference for NTNM interviews (in the event he has too many to handle) will be given to those candidates who place ads with his publication.
So now you know.
NTNM airs Thursdays on CAN-TV at 7:30 p.m., and again on Fridays at 2:30 p.m. It airs in Evanston on Cable Channel 6 on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. and Sundays at 10:30 p.m. NTNM also airs on a number of cable systems in the suburbs Thursdays and Monday. Check your local listings for air times.
(To avoid any misunderstandings, let me also reiterate that FWIW does not sell candidate ads. For more information about FWIW, see this November 2015 post.)
