Candidate Statement 2016
WBAI is one of the few media outlets that will offer a non-corporate perspective. This could only happen with the generous ongoing support from listeners.
We need to expand our listener base with newer and younger listeners in the mix.
Now I’m not breaking new ground in what I just said, but we do need to do this.
Anyone who’s elected to this board needs to understand that we all need to be on the same page to expand listenership, find alternative ways to raise money and really start thinking about building a space for high-quality broadcasting.
Otherwise, what’s the point?
If we can’t work together and give a crap about WBAI’s future, why are we doing this?
This is like re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic if this board can’t get its act together.
I do a lot of things here at WBAI and I will be extremely pissed if my time is wasted.
The future of WBAI is the side we should be on.
