KPFK reducing staff to what end ? Exit coming ?




 this is reposted = as found on another website : Pacifica in exile. org

 KPFK has been on air radio 'plugging' begging pleading irritating and repeating for a whole month, to not enough avail. Results are maybe 1/2 of their [pre-set] goal. And who wants to listen to same-old infomercials repeated endlessly....instead of any 'regular programming'.    


Why pay for this onslaught? Then notice of staffs being reduced hours,  as program-staff work-times are also being  reduced when some Newly-set-up ' gen'l mgr' decides she likes extreme  & factually unsubstantiated views better....

and... more to come

"Leslie Radford presented this work schedule reduction less than three months after being hired by Margy Wilkinson as the station’s general manager.

The reductions include three staff members, 2 unionized and at least 4 months of reduction to half time for the station’s remaining 50 staffers.

The SAG-AFTRA bargaining unit does not appear at this time to have signed on to the planned reductions.

KPFK was the network’s biggest money-earner as recently as 2013.
