WXXI AM News

America On the Line

Monday - Thursday at 8 p.m. through November 8
  • Hosted by Jonathan Capehart

America on the Line is a live program from WNYC Radio which will be a national sounding board about the state of our nation as we head into the midterm elections. Hosted by Pulitzer prize winning journalist Jonathan Capehart, the program’s mission is to delve into the issues and attitudes that matter most to our listeners in every region of the country.

In addition to covering the news of the day, each episode focuses on a key political match-up or an issue that is especially important to some groups of voters. We hear from candidates, strategists, analysts and, most important, the voters themselves, who will call in to express their opinions, ask questions and engage with other listeners.
