Greenwatch 19 July 2017: Pacifica Controversy

This week's installment of Greenwatch TV will feature Dr. Obidike Kamau, longtime programmer at KPFT 90.1 FM, Pacifica Radio. Kamau will discuss his recent, highly controversial dismissal from the position of interim General Manager of the listener-supported station. The firing came after only three months at the helm, following the latest of many unsuccessful on-air fund drives, amid financial difficulties for the entire Pacifica network. Programmers and members of the Local Station Board have lodged protests against the decision to fire the station's first African-American GM so soon.

Greenwatch TV airs live on Houston Media Source every other Wednesday evening at 8:30 pm Central Time. Houston residents can view the program on the following cable channels, depending on their cable provider:

  • Comcast: 17
  • Phonoscope: 75
  • AT&T, SuddenLink: 99
