Soapbox Summer Series
During Morning Edition and All Things Considered
WEMU’s popular election feature, “Soapbox Summer” has returned for the 2016 primary election season. Any candidate whose name will appear on the August 2 primary ballot in Washtenaw County is eligible to participate. No reporter questions, no interruptions or interference. Soapbox summer gives candidates the opportunity to say exactly what they want, how they want. It gives WEMU listeners and area voters the opportunity to hear a candidates' message, unfiltered. Soapbox Summer will begin airing during Morning Edition with David Fair beginning Monday, July 11th and will be rebroadcast on All Things Considered as well as online at wemu.org.
Soapbox Summer is an exclusive presentation of the 89.1 WEMU News Department. Only one speech per candidate will be accepted and all files will be retained by WEMU. The speeches will be aired in their entirety exactly as recorded. WEMU does not provide production facilities.
