Hi everyone — an update!
You have heard the news about the closing of Air America Radio. We’re sorry to see our friends and officemates go, and wish them the best. Of course!

But GRITtv is also in a fix: GRITtv has broadcast from the Air America studios since May 2008. Now we have to find a new home and it’s not going to be cheap! We’re looking at nearly $50,000 in moving expenses, equipment purchases, and cost increases, and we have to raise it fast.

Will you contribute to our MOVING DRIVE?

Every donation you make will be matched dollar for dollar by Free Speech TV, and will help us move, equip a new studio and continue bringing you your GRITtv fix without interruption. We know we are going to end up somewhere GREAT! We have other new, exciting features coming too!

But just right now, we need a little help. It’s cold out here!

Alternative studio and housing tips are also welcome! Send them to GRITtv@GRITtv.org.

Again, you can contribute at GRITtv.org Every contribution helps. We appreciate all your support in helping us make GRITtv even better. THANK YOU!!!

Laura and the GRIT gang…
