Hi we’re on the road again back in the USA this time we’ve picked Kokomo, a small factory town in Indiana to mark the 100th day of the Obama presidency on Wednesday the 29th. We’ll be looking at different policies of the Obama administration and how they worked for the people of Kokomo.
Kokomo is a big auto town, the Chrysler and GM plants there are two of the biggest employers. For World Have Your Say we’ll be in UAW Local 292 a union for GM and Delphi electronics auto workers. We’ll also be going around town all day broadcasting fro different World Service programs so listen out for us on Newshour, The World Today and if you’re in the USA World Update.
We’ll be visiting Community First Bank, a locally founded Kokomo bank, Kokomo high school, Kokomo Opalescent glass company and many other local businesses to give you a feel of the town and what their feelings are towards the Obama presidency,. If you’d like to participate in the discussion or have any questions for them start posting them here. Also check out the trip’s web-page on our BBC website, you’ll be able to follow us around and also see photos of all the people we’re speaking to.
On Thursday the 30th and Friday the 1st of May we’ll be in Indianapolis doing two world Have Your Say shows with WFYI. On Friday we’ll be at the Anthenaeum Theatre so if you’re Indianapolis you’re more than welcome to stop by and take part in the program. We look forward to seeing you there.
