Handling Hijacking

KPFK in Los Angeles is a station beleaguered with issues, from fundraising problems to programming suggesting homosexuality was caused by admiration of Black penises. General Manager Radford got let go recently. Her supporters then apparently stole the station’s social media accounts and continue to post rants against Radford’s ouster and that of Lydia Brazon, former board chair. It’s a move plainly intended to damage a network that saw a million-dollar lawsuit filed against Pacifica in Brazon’s tenure.

My latest, offered as exclusive content to the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, presents guidance for stations to not have these kinds of social media fails. It’s not an uncommon issue, sadly.

NFCB member stations get tutorials such as social media management tips as part of membership.
