The new interim executive director of Pacifica and a crew of people are now in New York at WBAI to supposedly to rebuild the stations finances and listenership. At the same time the number of listeners and supporters continues to decline at nearly all Pacifica stations including KPFA in Northern California. The ongoing internal crisis is part and parcel of the failure to provide new programming and connect with the millions of people who are looking for an alternative from the corporate controlled media.
This forum will look at what is happening at Pacifica at a variety of Pacifica stations and how the network can be rebuilt to become a relevant network and portal for new, information and alternative views. Included will be views from throughout the country and from participants in the Pacifica National Board Meeting PNB which is taking place the same weekend at the International House at UC Berkeley.

Speakers:
Leslie Radford, LA KPFK LSB and Pacifica National Board
Luzette King, Washington D.C. WPFW LSB and Pacifica National Board
Ralph Schoenman, Producer WBAI "Taking Aim"
Sureya Sayadi, KPFA Local Station Board
Steve Zeltzer, Labor Journalist and Producer, Member KPFA
