Because what happens to KPFA in Berkeley directly and immediately affects KPFK in Los Angeles, this story is urgent, important and needs further investigation and verification – by anyone, any how and shared further.
Any reader here who has donated/ contributed $$$ this past year, or volunteer-worked >3 hrs is considered a Member.
And the KPFK organization Claims, anyhow, to be responsive and responsible to it’s members and thus 'stakeholders' [as are shareholders in more commercial companies].
You or anyone can call the radio station at KPFK at
818 985 2711 x 0
weekdays 9am- 5 pm
and ask questions or speak to the General Manager
or who ever is claiming to be In Charge,
or Authorized to reveal what IS HAPPENING
to ‘Our Radio Station” in LA.
A sale of 1 / 5th of Pacifica’s stations, and the 1 of the 2 main and still kinda viable entities are KPFK - which owns it’s own building property -

But both are valuable as Businesses, as radio station properties with equipment, licenses, et al and thus this story needs to be exposed, explained and recognized = if true.

"While the details remain to be seen, and it isn’t clear if premature disclosure of the rumored offer will change the timeline, a few things can be said about what is rumored will occur.
"KPFA’s broadcast license, which is one of the two in the network that is commercially convertible, can confidently be stated to be worth a minimum of $50 million dollars…”
