Sun Jan 23 2011 (Updated 01/24/11)Station Personnel, Supporters, Students Rally and Protest to Save USF Radio Station
On January 20th, a meeting on the USF campus was held in protest of the sudden and unannounced shutdown of 34-year-old college station KUSF the day before. A $3.75 million sale of the station's FCC license occurred January 18th, in a secret deal of which almost nobody at the station had prior knowledge.
Shocked and outraged station personnel, supporters, students, a media studies professor, and other media made up close to 500 people who rallied outside the packed auditorium. Those in the hall demanded explanations and a better resolution from unapologetic school president Reverend Steven A. Privett, who made the deal. Reverend Privett was willing to address the outraged group for over an hour and a half, but he just kept repeating lines like “cost-benefit” decisions for students and saying that he had no obligation to the larger community. He hid behind the secretive “non-disclosure agreement," often chiding speakers for their level of passion. Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi attended.
Station personnel are speaking out on KPOO and KALX radio shows as well as in other media. Organizing information can be found at kusf-archives.org. Supporters plan to attend the Board of Supervisors meeting January 25th at 1pm at City Hall.
