The Local Station Board meets today.
Neither knowledge nor expertise is limited to boardmembers. Please come out and speak up!
The Pacifica National Board (PNB) chose $4 million in loans because they could not envision an affirmative alternative for addressing the Empire State Building lawsuit and other organizational debt. Almost 3 months after using all Pacifica property as collateral, the PNB has no repayment plan except a WBAI signal sale or swap. Some PNB members still do not have all the numbers involved in the recent transactions.
Last month, LSB member King Downing brought a unanimously approved motion that the PNB provide loan details to the network’s 5 LSBs and listeners. On the PNB, William Heerwagen continues to urge a policy that where a bequest says “Pacifica” but fails to specifically the name of a station, credit for funds or property shall be given to the station where the donor had a terrestrial listening or primary donating relationship.

WBAI seeks a person with programming, management, and broadcast experience, knowledge of current affairs, the ability to work collaboratively with diverse and opinionated staff, listeners, local board and community groups, openness to learn and willingness to teach, and the confidence and creativity to re-imagine and help revitalize WBAI.
