KPFK and Pacifica are runniing aground...more, again.... (tags)

KPFK and Pacifica are in a dangerous places, again. Careful. Here is a summary below reposted from the original writer's site. Visit there for more news stories also. And comment there as well.

KPFK as Pacifica may be in legal jeopardy, again... (tags)

A notice was directed to California Attorney General’s Office Department of Justice about some illegal or unethical actions that have been taken at various Pacifica radio stations, including KPFK. Excerpts are provided below, FYI. And for anyone concerned to act accordingly as an activist wanting to maintain integrity of the corporations to which we contribute $$$.

KPFK Website in error, difficult to search and find? Is it still functional ? (tags)

KPFK WEBSITE has many strange omissions and confusing double entries and seems to be neglected. Updates or correct information seems difficult to find. And wrong results appear, more than a few times.

Update on WHAT IS HAPPENING AT KPFK and what can be done & elections (tags)

This is a repost of a message to a list, then forwarded to the LAAMN list, and now here.

KPFK RADIO is essential to Pacifica, who also umbrellas KPFA that may be falling away (tags)

KPFK is the prime radio station of 5 in Pacifica. KPFA in Berkeley seems to be acting illegally or secretly to separate OUT and away from Pacifica with 1 faction hiding their moves. This is here a repost to inform those who want KPFK in LA to continue and not fall prey to tactics used at it's sister station. Beware non-transparent games even within 'non-profit' corporations owned by stakeholders [ funders, pledge $ givers].this could be a warning of what may also be gamed with KPFKs existence. Learn more and share it too.

KPFK hosted PACIFICA's board in LA. Missed it? here's some for ya (tags)

More on PACIFICA FORUM in LA june 2015 - as observed and noted. Many KPFK public members - and staff - and programmers came for their brief 2-min comment to the 'parent' company- Pacifica PNB members present, The PNB spoke for hours disputing, conflicting, discussing and also shouting to each other - while the larger-size audience sat way in back behind their circle.

KPFK'S rep to Pacific Bd Whitleblower -being kicked out ...plse sign petiton here (tags)

KPFK is losing a courageous whistleblower - one who dared to reveal secrets - that were requested by Atty General in a legal action - while pertinent & vital info was denied the AG by the Pacifica Na'l Bd members . So instead PNB conveniently wants to kick out a KPFK PNB member who complies with the investigation and laws ? what is going on ??? Since when is law-less-ness the better way to solvency ?

The Pacifica Radio Network and "local control" (tags)

SaveKPFA are the majority caucus on the elected KPFA Local Station Board (LSB). Their delegates to the Pacifica National Board (PNB) are also in the majority there. "Local control" has always been a main plank of their platform, but in February, the PNB cast a vote that seemed to institutionalize the exact opposite.

KPFK is integral part of Pacifica, going broke ? (tags)

KPFK says it is going to do another whiney begfest for more $$$ tomorrow, with claims they did not get enough money during the extra long fund raising they barely just completed. Could it also be due to these also secret non-transparent doings at Pacifica, which KPFK also is run by and where KPFK payors also pays for 'belonging' ....and thus we too seem to be crazily represented in -Pacifica and all the PNB members decide or decry - as also by some of KPFK's own LSB members are PNB members too ? what is going on anyhow? Can our LA local radio station continue on at all ? or is it being set up to be sold off, the building sold for cold cash and then ? dead air ? all gone ? money down that radio drain ?

More about KPFK via Pacifica turmoils (tags)

as Updates appear, they are being excerpted here reposted for LOCALS to also follow if anyone is interested. To all appearances, the conflicts continue as unresolved as nations within nations do, without the physical bullets and rockets but with the same intents and results it seems. Some are not going to seek out information so this seems to be a site where some PACIFICA and it’s local affiliate KPFK doings and undoings are being revealed. Not because it is appreciated or can be ‘helped’ but because at least, it is said, “it is good to know..even if….” yes, there are a few "other" views/ sides/ opponents and different ways the stories are being told too. See elsewhere for those.

Pacifica clearly endangered. Reposting info here: (tags)

This is a repost of an email being made available to many who care about keeping the Pacifica 5 stations together vs. some PNB members who want to sell off 3 ailing radio stations to maintain the remaining 2 in California. - - - - - - - If you want to : Please sign their court petition at http://www.jotformpro.com/PDGG/petition Otherwise, the information contained in this reposting may update what else is secreted and not-known-in-LA because there is no transparency, no openness and only requests for $$$ pledges by local KPFK.

Updating chaotic crumblings at Pacifica - affects KPFK too. (tags)

Events continue in the higher levels of a mixed-up Pacifica Fdtn with who is in charge and who is not and who has authority and who claims what. With most in Los Angeles not extending to keep up with details as others derail and destroy what was before a ‘radical’ variety of programming at KPFK, along with it’s sponsors, here are reposted excerpts to both advise, inform, and urge activism in any form an Indy reader will dare to help the mess from spilling over and out into KPFK and so into our lives here. Fuller information is available at the links provided here. Note that excerpts are for *Relevant Clarification * and those that may be pertinent how KPFK in LA is affected by what else is currently being disputed, declared and not questioned. The many detracting claims and counterclaims affect the operations and functionings of Pacifica Fdtn and it’s 5 stations, More specific detailed info can be read in the entire articles/ reports written by Tracy Rosenberg at the links included at facebook: “United for Community Radio KPFA “. Though the stories appear to emphasize the sibling station in Berkeley KPFA, the results affect our Local KPFK radio station 90.7 FM in LA equally, even when our station's ID is ignored in their stories. It was our own KPFK prior GM who was laddered Up into Pacifica's interim Exe Director position, but by Berkeley's group and it was not even discussed at the local KPFK LSB in April. Why ?

Bernard Duncan, prior GM of KPFK is still in play (tags)

Strange sightings are occurring…here in LA we have been told that the recent Gen’l Mgr of KPFK had resigned months before his contract was up in June, and left the station in March 2014 instead, with the KPFA Berkeley manager coming in as interim manager here. Now Bernard Duncan’s name has reappeared in some other suspicious circumstances that most of those who are KPFK sponsors/ subscribers/ members/ payers Do Not Understand, and Have Not Been Informed…at all ! Why is there no local transparency or an LA Town Hall meeting to explain, to hear and ask questions - and even if answers are not accurate or easy, for there to be available Discussion, Exposure, Information -vs silence and secrecy – yes, here where KPFK still exists and plays on air ...as if nothing else were going on behind some closed hallowed doors - secretly....unknown to us. We have no say, of course, no power, no input, no nutin but pay and wonder and worry. who are the players here and what are they doing ? in secret alliances ?

Reported excerpts of Pacifica's - and that's KPFK's - incidents happening - update (tags)

Tracy Rosenberg has been updating information in a reporter's fashion with what is occurring...tho far from LA, still relevant to our own KPFK, however it falls Out or sideways. The Pacifica Nat'l Bd [PNB] and Pacifica's attorney and others star in the more recent incidents. Excerpts that may interest local LAers is here. See Tracys facebook site in future for updates as they show up. [why Indymedia is glumping all paragraphs together is not resolvable by this writer, so please glimpse for key words or parts that Can Be Read if possible. This glitch seems to occur when spacing well is in the article written but does not come out in final results here. sorry for that. See Facebook link for more info anyhow. ]

Repost from Counterpunch re Pacifica - KPFK too involved (tags)

Excerpts from a recent article about the happenings to Pacifica, the holder of KPFK and other 4 stations nationwide. Recent upheavals and attempts at 'take-overs' and resistances and wild stories of in-fighting...continue...on....

KPFK: self-destructing? or is it again the usual dysfunctioning? (tags)

Recent comments have been heard : that the Pacifica National Board may want to replace current management/ staff without Informing, or Getting Input from the Shareholders who ‘own’ + pay + sustain the station. What details are kept secret, and the usual silence on-air gags all conversation, or any sharing of what is actually happening ? Contrary to claims of ‘open communications’ it is still only a 1-way communication coming from inside KPFK to us out here - and nothing allowed to exit from the hallowed station-office halls to the Paying Public - the one that keeps the station afloat. Why ? What maneuvers could be happening ? When will the Shareholders find out [oh, is it already too late ?] to participate in this upheaval or learn of the intentions to make major personnel changes at KPFK ? huh ?

CORPORATE MEDIA IS COMING TO HOME (tags)

KPFA Manager "Resigns" (tags)

Good news from WBAI, Pacifica in NY (tags)

WBAI is KPFA's Pacifica sister station in New York. Unfortunately, for several years WBAI was dominated and mismanaged by a group which called itself the "Justice & Unity Coalition" (JUC). The rule of the JUC ended this spring, when Grace Aaron became Pacifica's PNB chair and acting Executive Director; she intervened and made changes. Below is a report from WBAI by Doug Henwood.

How To Lose Pacifica, and How To Save It (tags)

As a member of KPFK's Local Station Board, I've been asked repeatedly to explain what's happening at the community radio station. This is my letter to the Pacifica National Board, KPFK's parent organization. I paint the PNB members with a broad brush here, and some individual members were as forthcoming as they could be under the hammer of "breaching confidentiality.". What we never got were official explanations. The Pacifica National Board can be reached at pnb@pacifica.org.

For KPFK/Pacifica Fans: Feedback Wanted (tags)

At its meeting on Tuesday, November 11, the Local Station Board Delegates will be voting on changes to the Pacifica Bylaws. The Bylaws took more than a year of contention and lawsuits to assemble, and changes should be carefully considered. Overall, the changes, included below with comments for and against, increase the amount of business the Pacifica National Board can do and increase its efficiency in doing that business. The downside is reduced member and listener participation in the process. As an LSB member, I would like to hear your thoughts on these important revisions before voting. You can comment here or email me privately, or you can voice your opinion at the LSB meeting, at 7:00 at Palms Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2908 Robertson Place, Los Angeles. The Church is located 3 blocks north of National Blvd. and the I-10, to the east of S. Robertson Blvd. LA buses 220 and 534 and Big Blue Bus 12 are within walking distance.

Dan Siegel & Pacifica Radio (tags)

Dan Siegel is now both interim Executive Director and General Counsel for Pacifica. He intervened in last fall's KPFA board election to help insure a victory for the Sherry Gendelman slate. Meanwhile, the board election at WBAI, the Pacifica sister station in New York, was even more blatantly corrupt than the one at KPFA, and it became the subject of a court case. In this letter, counsel for the plaintiffs tells the Pacifica National Board (PNB) that Dan Siegel is "an unreliable source of legal advice and facts about this lawsuit."

Pacifica Radio--the old regime's legacy at KPFA (tags)

The slow motion takeover of KPFA began in 1992 and reached its climax in 1999.

It's the background of today's ongoing struggle at KPFA's Local Station Board (LSB).

Race and National Origin at Pacifica Why You Should Care (tags)

Turn on your radio. Spin the dial. Companies like clear channel and Cox own well in excess of 3000 broadcast outlets. That's how most of us get our information. Pacifica exists to counter that. It has only 5 stations, but in major cities, With $400,000,000 in assests and 16 million in yearly budget the foundation is the single most valuable asset of the left. Under one vision it would move to the right, under another it would recruit activists to actually create media.

Outwardly Progressive, Internally Corporate: Pacifica's Next Challenge (tags)

Internal problems at Pacifica stations still plague the network. While the major battle at Pacifica was won early this year, the war against a corporate style hierarchy is not over. It was this very hierarchy which enabled the General Managers to abuse their power within the stations in the first place. In order for meaningful change to occur, this structure should change, not just the personalities. Please see attached open letter by KPFK staff, highlighting problems and suggesting some solutions.
