"Pacifica Radio’s Second Chance

2 October 2007, 1:29 pm
Filed under: Blogroll, Pacifica by Matthew Lasar
copied from “lasar’s letter on the fcc”

The Pacifica National Board has hired Nicole Sawaya as Executive Director of the Pacifica Foundation, LLFCC has learned. Pacifica owns the licenses for five listener supported radio stations in Berkeley, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Houston.

This is great news, LLFCC thinks. It signifies that a critical mass of people at Pacifica have grown weary of chaos and drift.

In case you have forgotten, Nicole Sawaya served as General Manager of Pacifica station KPFA in Berkeley in 1999. A proud Lebanese-American, Sawaya was quite popular with both listeners and staff. She offered professionalism and openness in equal proportions—that is, until the networks’ then executive boss Lynn Chadwick summarily tanked her in late March of that year.[snip]

LLFCC knows Nicole Sawaya quite well, as a colleague and a friend. She has what it takes to turn Pacifica around: years managing three grassroots public radio stations, experience with mainstream public broadcasting, effective advocacy for rural radio listeners, dedicated work with new media, and, most importantly, a first class temperament.

But Sawaya can’t do this alone. She will need an environment of good will—a substantial core of people who want her to succeed and will come to her defense. At Pacifica, that does not happen by accident.

This is Pacifica radio’s second chance, folks. It is time for leadership to take notice.
