The manager of KPFA who supported calling the police to the station to arrest Nadra Foster has cancelled the KPFA Flashpoints show at 5:00 PM without written or advance notice. Although this show raises more money than most the manager apparently wants to get it off the air during the fund drive. The managers have written a report that calls for more NPR type programming at Pacifica.
KPFA manager Lemlem Rijio who supported calling the police to the station to arrest KPFA unpaid staff producer Nadra Foster has ordered Flashpoints off the air with no written or advance notice. Rijio who is the author of a report that calls for the commercialization of the network and whose "passion" is coddling rich listeners wants to commericalize Pacifica and turn the stations into more like NPR operations.
Call the station at 5:00 PM and let them know what you think about Lemlem's operation.
