We also know that many of you have been disappointed by the temporary hiatus of the Morning Show while we sought ways to produce the show in our difficult financial circumstances. We expect to announce an exciting new Morning Show lineup for the 8-9 am hour very soon.
Beginning Monday, December 6th, we'll be airing one hour of news at 6 am, Democracy Now! at 7 am, Uprising from KPFK at 8 am, and Democracy Now! will be rebroadcast at 9 am.
While layoffs are painful and programming changes are difficult, we remain committed to the visionary founding mission of Pacifica — to provide news and information not commonly available elsewhere, to explore and understand the causes of conflict, to help bring about a lasting understanding between peoples of all races, creeds and nations, and to provide an outlet for the cultural expressions of our community.
We cannot do this without you. KPFA needs all of us — listeners, staff and management — to pull together to help KPFA through this critical financial crisis. The station cannot continue without your generous support. We have scheduled a 4-day fund drive for mid-December. Kindly consider doubling your contribution to KPFA this year.
We would like to clarify on item in a November 11, 2010 posting on the Pacifica website concerning the fiscal crisis. That posting included a statement that Union employees had advanced an alternative cost-cutting approach which would have involved canceling the programs Flashpoints and Hard Knock Radio (and associated positions). The Union has since advised that no such proposal was advanced by Union employees. Accordingly, KPFA and Pacifica formally retract the statement in the November 11th posting, which has been removed from the Pacifica website. We regret and apologize for the inaccurate statement.
