Free Speech Radio News is closing at the end of September
We've recieved the sad news that FSRN our half hour evening news that has aired at 7pm every weekday, is being forced to close down because of financial troubles at Pacifica Radio. Here is the message from Pacifica:
This is an update from Pacifica Radio Network. It is with deep regret that we must announce the termination of Free Speech Radio News' newscast on September 26. The newscast has ended due to financial constraints.
Pacifica and Free Speech Radio News are continuing communication about options to bring you grassroots community news. We are looking to understand what is possible.
We greatly appreciate the support and participation of your local community radio station. As always, it is your participation as a listener that makes community radio possible. Thank you for listening and we continue to seek ways to serve you.
