Summary:

"Nowadays it may be hard to imagine a pre-internet world where information wasn't sloshing about like some overloaded sauce pan. And while it is true that there were more local newspapers at the time, WNYC afforded Rankin and her staff the ability to go directly to the public with the civic information they believed it needed in order to make informed decisions at the voting booth."
