14 June 2007 ED Statement on KPFK Allegations, Litigation and Fundraising

FROM: Greg Guma, Executive Director

STATEMENT ON KPFK ALLEGATIONS, LITIGATION AND FUNDRAISING

I have received a statement from a group of producers and programmers at KPFK concerning their belief that it is "economically and ethically wrong" to raise money from KPFK's listener-sponsors without full disclosure of the potential financial costs of current litigation brought by a staff member. They also put forward a number of proposals.
