Laura Flanders founded GRITtv in 2008, since which time the company has produced over 10,000 videos, articles and livestreamed sessions impacting over 2 million lifetime viewers and achieved website hits numbering in the millions. Spanning syndicated broadcast, radio, satellite, cable TV stations and radio, today GRITtv is an online source for reporting, interviews and commentaries featuring trailblazing social movement heroes and thought leaders. Incorporating viewer-submitted content, grassroots activism, and a positive, progressive solutions oriented message, Flanders seeks out the smartest thinkers and doers of our time and gives them and their movements a stronger-than a soundbite media forum in which to drive social change. Laura’s interviewed among others, Noam Chomsky, Eve Ensler, Laurie Anderson, Jesse Jackson, Arundathi Roy, Josh Fox, Alex Gibney and Vandana Shiva. Funded by its viewers and affiliate partners, GRITtv partners with Yes! Magazine, The Nation, Truthout and many more to provide high quality video content for independent non-commercial media.
