Sally Kane, the CEO of The National Federation of Community Broadcasters, joins the podcast to discuss the threats and opportunities for community radio in the current political environment. In the months, since the election of Trump, the NFCB has received a lot of questions from community radio stations about how to respond and what comes next.
First, Sally discusses the concrete impact that the elimination of federal funding via the Corporation for Public Broadcasting would have, especially on rural and Native American stations. Then she offers advice for how stations should tackle hot issues, reaching to their communities to help bring diverse voices to air, rather than rely only on polemic.
Jennifer Waits updates us on college radio news, including a provocative article in the popular online music publication Pitchfork, and a university that has decided to cancel plans to build a LPFM station, returning the construction permit to the FCC.Please help us our work in providing community radio and podcasting coverage seen nowhere else. If we don’t do it, it won’t get done.
