Pacifica National Board: Don't Secretly Rush to Lease Away WBAI's Broadcast Signal

To solve WBAI’s financial crisis, the Pacifica National Board is reportedly considering leasing WBAI to another organization, and making the decision in a secret meeting. With our petition, we are insisting that they should not take such drastic action - which would mean losing WBAI's input into program decision-making, and depending on the lessee chosen, could be devastating to serving Pacifica's mission - rather than first fully trying effective fundraising methods. And the National Board absolutely must not make any such decision in a secretive manner without input from listeners and staff. This is also the position taken by the WBAI Local Station Board's Finance Committee on September 25.
