Session 4: Saturday, June 2nd: 4:00 - 5:50pm
Literally at the 11th hour, the largest alternative and progressive network in the United States was able to secure a loan and prevent the Empire State Realty Trust company from seizing our assets. This would have closed down the entire network and resulted in the sale of WBAI and another Pacifica station, WPFW. This has left the foundation with a multi million dollar debt that must be repaid within 18 to 34 months. In moving forward to revolutionize Pacifica and WBAI in particular, we want to explore ideas as to how to make Pacifica a relevant and critically important progressive mass media success in the 21st century.
