Welcome to Sunshine Week; a national initiative to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information.

Broadcast news is built around the free flow of information from an open, transparent government. This week, WALB is joining with our colleagues at television stations, radio stations, and newspapers around the country to call attention to the importance of a free flow of information in our democracy.

We're airing public service announcements with messages from Sunshine Week Chairman, Tom Brokaw.

Though spearheaded by journalists, Sunshine Week is about the public's right to know what its government is doing, and why. Sunshine Week seeks to enlighten and empower people to play an active role in their government at all levels, and to give them access to information that makes their lives better and communities stronger.

You can learn more about Sunshine Week at www.SunshineWeek.com.

During Sunshine Week, celebrate your right to know. And insist on it all year.
