After a long run of 33 years, we have been notified by WBAI management that August 31, 2016 is our last live broadcast show.

Berthold Reimers the general manager of WBAI is following through to changeover 70% of the current programming, He has arbitrarily elected to drop some 30% of the shows currently being broadcast and suggested another 40% may be dropped in the new future.

He discussed this with no one at the station and affected producers of those shows were notified via a perfunctory email message. He stated he was not available for any discussion on the changes. If you want to know more about what he thinks and does, please go the following YouTube links:

A 40 second clip of GM Reimers explaining the scope of the program changes in response to a question. He says if he had his way it would be 70%, but estimates that at this time changes, including removal and slot changes, to be 20-30% of the programs.

Also Mr. Reimers explains at the LSB that no process has been followed in making the decision in this 5 min back and forth between Sharonne Salaam.

If you have any thoughts or comments for the management, send your email directly to:
