DAVID HINKLEY writes in TODAY's NEW YORK DAILY NEWS that AIR AMERICA, heard locally on ACCESS.1 Talk WWRL/NEW YORK, has offered an hour of free airtime to all presidential candidates.
The "Presidential Project" was conceived by 8-10p host RICHARD GREENE to help reduce the pressure of money in election campaigns. All eight major Democratic candidates have accepted, says GREENE, and the invitation has been extended to Republicans.
Those who accept the offer, which must be cashed in during the first two weeks of OCTOBER, can either host an hour on GREENE's show or submit a prerecorded two to five-minute statement that will run several times during the week.
