WBAI In Crisis: Can We Save It?

Last year, you signed the petition urging station management to move to more affordable quarters. Although our idea was rejected out of hand, since then, conditions have brought about several relocations. Today, we face a moral and economic crisis: WBAI’s paid staff, including all morning and afternoon on-air hosts and news reporters, has received layoff notices effective July 15, 2013.
We have posted a new petition urging fairness, modernization, and accountability– see http://www.change.org/petitions/pacifica-national-board-stop-mass-layoffs-at-wbai
Join the Coalition to Save WBAI on Sat., 7/13, or at one of several meetings to come in other areas.
