Charles Showalter is the host of the Union Edge, a labor radio show, is based in Pennsylvania that broadcasts daily in over a dozen stations throughout the USA. The Union Edge covers local and national news. Charles frequently reached across the political aisle to help develop a more informed and diverse labor audience.  Charles and Labor-Lines host Vic Fusco interview each other on the status of labor media today.

Next, we chat with Tom Campbell, Editor and Publisher of Western New York Labor Today, a publication that focuses on labor battles in Western New York and around the country.

Today’s emerging leaders have embraced online communication and WNY Labor has been designed to engage them on the digital platform while the Union Edge helps the labor message reach airwaves around the country.
