PACIFICA RADIO BOARD SECRETLY OK'S BANKRUPTCY FILING & SEEKS NY SIGNAL SWAP (tags)

In secret meetings on Sept. 28 and Oct. 5, the Pacifica Foundation National Board, which governs the 5-station nonprofit progressive radio network, voted over strong opposition to authorize its executives to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and initiate an effort to make a lucrative deal to swap the frequency of iconic New York station WBAI with another station holding a less desirable signal position.

KPFK's Indy Media on Air Now on Wednesdays (tags)

KPFK's schedule has been changed again.

KPFK may also be up on Chopping Block ? We need to get facts now ! (tags)

KPFA in Berkley is rumored to be For Sale= that means KPFK in Los Angeles goes out in same manner as Pacifica cannot survive without these 2 main radio stations. We, members, need to investigate and reveal what is KNOWN as facts, corroborated, or what sounds like ‘rumor’ but verifiable. Soon !

Is KPFK up for sale? already? really? (tags)

KPFK struggles without re-solutions (tags)

KPFK :must VOTE by 9/30 to local board. (tags)

Below is a REPOST from a dedicated volunteer of KPFK who wants everyone to Vote, while providing his preferences for those not already decided. ACT NOW. Call the radio station for ballot if one was not rec'd but you qualify : 1-818-985-2711 x1 Deadline for returning the ballots is Sept 30! dont delay. If not enough voters act, the 'losers' who did not qualify in prior elections will now take their un-won positions instead ! No Fair ! A quorum must be met to have LSB members change and improve and have new voices run KPFK and 4 will also be nominated to be on Pacifica's board from all on LSB.

WIKIpedia is not what we readers Thought nor is it even current about Pacifica or KPFK (tags)

Looking at Pacifica and KPFK pages: Wikipedia so widely used and well thought of is not what the reputation claims nor it’s image intends – There is some information there, but it is edited so strictly by some power-players who claim it as ‘their own’ so possessively …so that many other verifiable & valuable informative writers are excluded and shunted out.

"KPFK has a $500,000 deficit “ !! Can this be true? (tags)

What we dont know that affects the organizations we pay $$$ to support ! ? And no one is talking, to KPFK listeners/ sponsors/ stakeholders. And also some of Alan Watts' words are included here too.

INDY's KPFK radio program being eliminated ? too ? (tags)

Indymedia on air RADIO program is being eliminated? Is this true ? Can no one share relevant information in different platforms & formats? is KPFK selecting OUT this site's representatives? Has anyone here let their audiences know this ? here?

KPFK and Pacifica, more doings, reposted here (tags)

Vital and Need-to-Know information is being reposted from pacificainexile.org here to inform all KPFK donors, sponsors, stakeholders, listeners and those who care about this Pacifica Radio Station's doing.

THE WHITE CITIZEN'S COUNCIL ... AKA KPFK AND FOLKS ON THE WESTSIDE (tags)

The White Citizen's Council was not the Klan, but only kinda not the Klan.

Pacifica is also KPFK and scandals are being transparentized. (tags)

Revelations have been published at the 1 website that dares to tell more of the internal doings of each and all Pacifica 5 radio stations, nationwide. KPFK is always connected to the others. Financially and otherwise. What happens at it’s umbrella – Pacifica- located in Berkeley is vital to it’s survival. Some revealed emails between a prior PNB member and Pacifica’s atty-counsel is posted there. See below

KPFK votes in local board. Join them in meeting. (tags)

After lots of conflict and infighting, the elections reveal the new LSB members and delegates to Pacifica board. At the Jan 24 @ 1pm meeting , the rest of us, public-members of KPFK, can see and maybe meet, the board -  those who can maybe influence how the radio station runs or continues to fail it's sponsors.   At an easy to find location. see KPFK.org for details under 'events' on home page. 

KPFK has passed elections and results are in now. (tags)

KPFK had elections for their local board {LSB} and the results listed. The next LSB meeting on Jan 24 in WLA will put these new members into office. All sponsors hope improvements will soon occur....

KPFK'S under Pacifica's Board- LAST CHANCE TO VOTE JAN 4 (tags)

Now or never is the TIME TO VOTE for Pacifica's National Board, the Pacifica umbrella that reigns over KPFK, plus 4 other radio stations nationwide. Jan 4th - MONDAY is deadline.... Act now or watch any chance of having input diminished or maybe even removed...... owch !

KPFK NEEDS ALL VOTES - now please (tags)

The deadline is Jan 4th - coming soon - or KPFK gets stuck with Old-Past-Due board-members -- those who have let the station Down this perilous financial loss path to now... VOTE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE

VOTE on KPFK or else it may be a lost cause or sold away (tags)

the urgency of to have a full QUORUM of voters before Jan 4, 2016 is being announced on Radio Station KPFK, 90.7 Fm in L.A. that has a broadcast reach past this county into San Diego, and Santa Barbara and is also sponsored by listeners on it’s website at http://KPFK.org. There is a threat and signs of bankruptcy or assets being sold for maintainance money and some KPFA board and atty connivers set to take away-over all of Pacifica’s Foundation, by replicating similarly it’s name.

More troubles? KPFK's got 'em. (tags)

OUR radio station must become more functional to have donors pay up ...to maintain the station. However, some signs of deterioration and neglect keep appearing. Sad. Scary. Can it die away ?

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.

KPFK needs your VOTE ! or lose it. (tags)

KPFK and Pacifica Elections must meet a very minimum quorum/ amount of voters who Vote and participate, or the expenses [about $25,000?] are wasted and same-old Board members happily stay stuck in place, out of legitimate time but clinging to power-positions. so VOTE if you qualify for their minimum contribution made this [fiscal] year. Call to inquire for more info at 818-985-2711 day hrs. or see www.KPFK.org for minimum info there.

KPFK is losing and reducing it's main programmers, so can Fresh ones emerge there instead? (tags)

KPFK's "Global Village" music programmers left behind an audience- to which they claimed such loyalty, but no one ever asked nor admitted what all KPFK programmers GET from their carefully-held on-air spot. Do we know ?

KPFK Updating: a coup? or failure? or.... (tags)

KPFK may be the vital part of Pacifica's failure and the maybe sell-off to privatize a take-over... or only a part of Pacifica's failures in administrative management, or any competent oversight, or their following CA state required audits and elections, and honest business practices, accounting, and many more lapses...that have already occurred. Updating some info for what is barely revealed to paid-up KPFK stakeholders.

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 is going topsy-turvy, still, with employees and unions (tags)

KPFK is drowning in employee-union problems with emails flying from programmers affected and some untangling of what is actually occuring hard to comprehend. But here are excerpts from an informatory website that regularly offers some answers as no one else can, it seems.

KPFK programmer writes subscribers & updates info: (tags)

A long-term KPFK programmer sent out this msg with the weekly schedule, which was not the usual. Concerns about on-going programs continuity are noted.

KPFK is in double trouble, credit cards misused, and... (tags)

Instead of copying the entire text of http://pacificainexile.org/archives/1093 that includes important revelations about KPFK and its financial dysfunctioning [s], it is best to just see the site directly.

KPFK= more. Tired of the turmoil? we are too. (tags)

KPFK programmer of important political interviews and one of the only-4 paid staff programmers on the station expresses his concerns and reveals his experiences with the new Gen'l Mgr. Recent changes to reduce staff work time may be the final 'shoe to drop' that will break whatever all stakeholders liked and paid for at Our Radio Station - paid for by listener-stakeholders. Excerpts of his latest revelations and plea is below.

KPFK Work Reductions ....signs of an ending now, so soon ? (tags)

- KPFK has been on air radio 'plugging' begging pleading irritating and repeating for a whole month, to not enough avail. Results are maybe 1/2 of their [pre-set] goal. And who wants to listen to same-old infomercials repeated endlessly....instead of any 'regular programming'.    Why pay forr this onslaught? Then notice of staffs being reduced hours,  as program-staff work-times are also being  reduced when some New-fangled ' gen'l mgr' decides she liles extreme  & factually unsubstantiated views better.... and... more to come 

KPFK of long ago had different views.... (tags)

A KPFK FOLIO of 1967 has editorial that shows how closer to it's origins there was open discussion and sharing with listeners ideas, questions, and even the monthly mailing of a filmy printed schedule with original artworks, poetry and even an editorial. This is one found that seems to talk about 'those long ago' days and times but that also reveals a different attitude that was then Available and Allowed at Our Radio Station. KPFK 90.7 FM radio.

kPFK under threatening duress - even to it's long-established staff by new Gen'l Mgr (tags)

A staff member, Ian Masters, who hosts a regular newsworthy program 6 days/week [and also has a public forum at the Hammer musem too which promotes KPFK by ] , has written a clear letter indicating his concerns . He wrote a truthful explanation of what is happening to programming and what he said about this also on-air, and has been duly threatened. Anyone concerned over such unreasonable acts at Our Radio Stattion should write to the current new GM at KPFK.org and state your views, concerns, and or willingness to continue pledging $$$.... or not. His emailed letter is below:

KPFK in MeltDown.NOW. (tags)

KPFK seems to be sliding down....hill...into financial decay...so say the paid-staff-programmers, now, finally admitting what has not been on-air told before. Or changing owners maybe ? Wont know till After it all Fallllls away ?

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.

New Pacifca In Exile web site launched (tags)

A new web site has been launched to help Pacifica (KPFK, etc.) listeners learn more of the inside info they need to know.

KPFK in Pacifica's meeting - more descriptions (tags)

These are excerpts REPOSTED for local LA listeners of KPFK - as to what else happens [not on-air-only presentations that are the slick surface of it all ] - written by a long-time prior dedicated PNB member.

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 & PAPCIFICA forum in LA (tags)

June 12 - 15 2015 - Fri-Sat-Sun, here in LA are 3 full days of meetings by Pacifica PNB & KPFK's LSB...with brief public-comment times barely included. See website for agenda.

KPFK difficulties continue (tags)

repost info from other sources that are not available to KPFK donors in LA - why no transparency ever ? still.....

KPFK buys premiums to re-sell them for donations -so (tags)

so donations are paid for twice by radio station supporters? The donations are not just for station essential maintanence? But to buy-and-sell their donors bribes - called "gifts"? The 'premiums'-gifts sometimes sent in return for $$$ to pay for Pacifica radio stations' maintenance are paid for by station donors too - while merchandisers are also gettiing so much Free Promotion, advertising, lauding by programmers and on-air-web exposure. Never ending chaos continues therein. https://www.facebook.com/UnitedForCommunityRadio

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 ?

KPFK and Pacifica- woes unrelenting... (tags)

We in LA all wish  to report or hear or write better news of improvements, less begging for more and more monies on air, less internal confusion and conflicts, and financial stability and ethics.....but ... not yet, or if ever possible is unknown...

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 ?

KPFK is an integral part of Pacifica... problems infect our LA station. (tags)

KPFK is an integral part of Pacifica... problems infect our LA station. Indymedia appears to be the only site where updates and iinformation-sharing on what is happening on extentions of what is OUR RADIO station - paid for by subscribers/ stakeholders ! - KPFK. The dearth of access, transparency and discussion in LA anywhere on line speaks to the secrecy and denial with impunity that is occuring daily in our radio sphere, while demanding more and more $$$$ from us ...or else.. here is more to learn, ask, share and perhaps even to get involved in any ways possible - including attending the confict-full, argumentative, and uncourteous harrangues at the Local Station Board on March 22, 1 pm in WLA   See KPFK.org for details, under 'events'. 

KPFK FUND DRIVE drives on and on and on ..... (tags)

no end in sounds of repeat programming, desperate guilt ploys, and asking for money to save what may be a dying old radio station. sad. but may be time for real changes, any how, any time, on air time especially.

KPFK and Pacifica still in morras, chaos, financial turmoil....why ? (tags)

KPFK is still losing money, begging daily and irritating all who have pledged $$$$ and are stakeholders who turn away from what seems endless fractionalized disorder. Some info from available sources aboyt how the problems also emanate from 'the above' organziation's sludging on without any honest improvements or doing real elections to show the way....or stop requiring payments to this nat'l office that is killing off any local gains or attempts to reduce, never stop, the infighting.

KPFK in fund drive, yet again , but in deeperin trouble (tags)

here is excerpt from more updated site ..re KPFK... see lots more there re Pacifica and it's conflictual perpetual state and the dangers therein... we want some reality- radio to be heard here in LA, not just brand-image presentations... to then beg for cash.. same as the usual commercial style replicated here too.

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 is shify-ing more (tags)

Pacifca.that small group of PNB board members are voting on changing the bylaws -- rules to go by that all 5 current stations should abide by. Votes on July 17 made a few changes and avoided other ones.

KPFK News covers the Che Cafe struggle (tags)

Listen to Ernesto Arce's coverage of the Che Cafe struggle on the KPFK Evening News. Reported on July 10, 2014

Producers/Community Oppose Cancellation of MM (tags)

A small uprising took place to prevent the cancellation of KPFA morning mix local community programming and it's replacement by the KPFK show "Uprising" By Sonali Kolhatkar. A show was held at KPFA with all the producers and voices from the community about the replacement and marginalization of the locally produced programming from drive time to other times.

An Open Letter To Sonali Kolhatkar, Host Of Uprising On KPFK (tags)

Pacifica management and KPFK and KPFA's manager Richard Pirodsky has enlisted KPFK host Sonali Kolhtatkar to support the cancellation of the Morning MIx locally produced community radio shows on KPFA so she can have a drive time slot. This has brought a torrent of anger of listeners and supporters of KPFA in Norther California and many are calling on Kolhatkar to abandon her plans to support the removal of KPFA local community programming on prime time. The newly appointed executive director Bernard Duncan was brought in by Pacifica Board Chair Margy Wilkinson despite the fact that he was discharged from KPFK for financial malfeasance. This was also supported by Dan Siegel and his law firm which is backing the cancellation of local community programming.

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 ?

Has KPFK's GM Duncan just dis-appeared? (tags)

More confusing information appears to say that Bernard Duncan who thought he was moving UP some ladder, may have fallen off, gone to NZ to return home and his girlfriend, or gotten sick of all the mess served up at Pacifica ? Who knows what really happens when secrecy and silence and non-transparency reigns in this nonprofit and non-informative fdtn, never telling on itself and it's fluctuations ? How confusing. Where is the man now ? Why is he not fulfilling the apparent nomination to be interim Exe Director, seemingly authorized by KPFA people?

Pacifica voting in secret with no accountability? Is this part of KPFK ? (tags)

Counterpunch is now publishing wrong info ? Who gave them that information about Pacifica? How confusing. Another commentator disclosed here at Indymedia how Pacifica Nat'l Bd voted to deselect the hired Exe Director. But the numbers and facts never add up correctly. Nor can results be explained and no names of voters are named. And KPFK's Local Station Board meetings have a fight club mentality and provides no factual helpful information either. Ask their LSB for more accurate info here: lsbchair@kpfk.org

Pacifica Exe Director position is in confusion still putting KPFK at risk (tags)

Pacifica is in broken shape, in at least two separate pieces: The Executive Directorship is allocated to 2 people by at least 2 groups. One is Summer Reese, [ a long time PNB chair and member, and she was contractually hired after many months working as interim ED ] and the other is Bernard Duncan, former KPFK general manager [ who claimed to be going to NZ to be with his girlfriend and he left his KPFK position months before his contract was up.]

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 ?

Pacifica board members named here, who attempted ousting ED (tags)

Pacifica conflict over who is Executive Director continues in it's non-wisdom and contenders vying for power and position. Here are excerpts of some updated info and names the PNB members who voted 12- to - 10 to 'fire' the one most recently hired. Some of these KPFK - LSB members who only very recently were elevated to PNB are included in the ousting, outing of Summer Reese. 3 of our 4 voted by phone to expel her. We need to hold all our LSB and PNB [acting as non-] representatives accountable for their actions, and not for their own personal opinions - - unless those interfere and overtake their responsibility to all us KPFK subscribers/ sponsors/ payers/ members.

LA Weekly promotes a slanted view of Pacifica/ KPFK (tags)

LA Weekly produced an article about Pacifica, which involves KPFK of course, that was apparently biased and the writer maybe even was a prior student of Cooper whom he liked to quote as if an "expert" but may not at all be so. The letters written to LA Weekly were on line and in print 2 more times to display the local concerns. This Open letter to their Editor is to respond to all 3 of those print-postings.

More Info about Pacifica, which holds KPFK's license, etc. (tags)

– More than is visible in any informative[vs. those preferring to attack] LA medium . So here are some reposts - parts of what is on URL that appears to be about KPFA in Berkeley but that also affects all PACIFICA FDTN stations equally. The confusion, conflict about the Exe Director Reese has opened up the box and more info is being revealed, finally ! These links and information is intended to be Shared, Exposed, Discussed, and later Resolved too. Not to set up more conflicts or malicious actions, please !

Listen to KPFK's staff talking to Pacifica Exe Director (tags)

Listen to a KPFK interview with Summer Reese a few nights ago, produced and interview by Roy Tuckman and Eben Rey, available on Soundcloud. Interesting to have direct verbal vocal information instead of so many other internet shades of grease that proliferate in trying to form stories and gossip and biased versions of what happened to whom. The direct person involved in the personnel issues of Pacifica are discussed here. KPFK listeners called in and added opinions also. Can the whole organization be saved and healed and repaired so it will not repeat [and again and again] ???

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....

Forever intertwined: KPFK, WBAI, Gary Null ? (tags)

A post copied from Wikipedia re Gary Null, long a premium contributor to KPFK. Confirmation of what is factual and what is assume should always be done but that takes more dedicated work. Meanwhile this is of interest to KPFK listeners in Los Angeles because Gary has been on air here for so many years, loved, disliked, distrusted, adored and purchased by many here thru KPFK's audio weekly. Add or change this with comments if you know more actualities. No slamming please !

Why is KPFK still failing to thrive ? (tags)

KPFK is more than intimately tied to it's umbrella leader Pacifica, whose latest Executive Director has been 'fired' by some of questionable authority and who refuses to accept the factionalization that predominates these radio stations operations. But no actual factual information is ever available, not locally from KPFK or most other sites on line. Mostly the usual malicious attacking anyone else blurbs are found online. Why do we who pay dearly to subscribe, to be members, to sponsor KPFK programs [tho we may not chose to pay for all pgrms presented there, if given any free choices ] . We, outside the sacred halls of radio station know NOTHING from our local sources of KPFK or Pacifica 'news' and information Finally 1 site just went up, see below. Just recently a new site went up that allows no comments but is intended to take a side in the national malicious arguments on line about who runs the Pacifica PNB [nat’l board] and petitions are included therein. see http://2014.supportkpfa.org and also maybe tour thru facebook https://www.facebook.com/notes/tracy-rosenberg/turning-off-the-water-and-firing-the-lawyer/10201760444914193 to learn a bit more about what is dramatically occurring in Pacifica’s Berkley offices. To search out what may be factual or actual from what are marketing-promotional or negative-attack-ads blurbs takes hours of time and reading and is uncompensated ‘work’ just to know where even our KPFK dollars are being spent or set up to be wasted. And other than a midnight interview that was not heard by the great majority of KPFK listeners gave a hint of what is happening to Pacific, about it’s Executive Director, and the future of the whole set of radio stations affiliated and dependent on some structure that is stable and honest…if possible.

KPFK turmoils continue, this one comes from Christine Blosedale critics (tags)

But has anyone heard Christine Blosedale complain about her job at KPFK ? Those at the recent Jan 2014 LSB meeting did.

KPFK SECRECY, TURMOILS, CONFLICTS, OPAQUENESS, and HYPOCRISY too ? (tags)

KPFK is apparently again experiencing changes with inside-hidden-competitions. turmoil, factionalizing conflicts and has denied it’s stakeholders and paying Public Members and Sponsors any participation or even being informed of “what is going on there ?” The most recent LSB board meeting was very unusually filled with KPFK programmers, some staff, and many public members present, speaking to problems that most members did not have any information about and could not obtain. Twice during that long 5 hr meeting, public comment time was used to directly ASK all in the room to clarify, state, explain to ‘the rest of us’ what was occurring and yet there was NO DIRECT HONEST INFORMATION given openly by anyone in the room to those ‘not in the know’. Five hours of maneuvering, conflicts, discussions and yet not one honest response to the question “what is happening inside KPFK ?” that brought out so many people to speak in behalf of staff or complain about staff or promote their own personal issues and causes. The Problem was never revealed nor stated. How could this be ? at Our Radio Station ?

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 ?

"A Liar...A Cheater...Physically Abusive" (tags)

Many tried to warn Pacifica about KPFK's new General Manager, Eva Georgia, but nobody listened. The Pacifica Radio Network, with five stations and numerous affiliates, has seen enough trouble over the last three years. It was left with a $4.8 million debt and in a state of organizational chaos by a corrupt board of directors that was mercifully removed last December by a determined army of reformers and four lawsuits.

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. (To add your name in solidarity, see directions below.)
