Summer Reese on the Future of WBAI
Although she has failed to meet* with the WBAI Local Station Board as the Pacifica National Board directed 3 weeks ago, Interim Executive Director Summer Reese apparently intends to appear on air on Thursday 10/24 at 6pm, shortly before the PNB meeting at 8:30pm.
You'll probably want to tune in at 6pm. For out-of-towners, apparently the stream works in spite of a note suggesting otherwise. And, of course, there'll be the archive at http://archive.wbai.org/
* Although others may also have thought they heard that the meeting was to occur within 5-7 working days of October 3, the written version said it should've been scheduled within this time. No matter, I suppose, as neither has happened in the 20 days since the meeting. I guess sometimes directives are just suggestions to the person the board, on paper, supervises...
