  1. Save WBAI! Partner with MNN – Sat., 2/10 mtg
  2. No Local Station Board meeting at time of crisis

******************

1. From the Coalition to Save WBAI (info@PROTECTED):

Save WBAI! Partner with Manhattan Neighborhood Network!

Urgent Community Meeting

Sat., Feb. 10 – 3-6 PM
MNN’s Firehouse Studio, 175 E. 104th St. (bet. Lex. & 3rd Aves.)

East Harlem

RSVP on Facebook & share widely.

(not an official WBAI event)

 

What if we told you that you could continue to hear programming you value, staff could operate in a state-of-the-art studio with a fixed transmitter, radio shows could be simulcast on TV, WBAI could be relieved of that $60,000 monthly Empire State Building rent, and fund drives could be greatly shortened?

Sounds too good to be true? It’s not!

This could happen if WBAI formed a partnership with the nonprofit Manhattan Neighborhood Network or MNN.

Your support can help make all this happen. To learn more, come out with producers and other listeners for this important community meeting.

2. No Local Station Board meeting at time of crisis

Yet again this month the powers that be on the WBAI Local Station Board have decided there’s no urgency to hold a meeting. Despite the financial crisis still facing the station and the important question of whether to support a partnership with Manhattan Neighborhood Network, the “governing” body is again choosing not to govern – or to give you a chance to be heard.

 

We will keep you posted on when the next Board meeting is scheduled.
