A little about Pacifica…
Pacifica’s tradition of unhampered access to the airwaves has allowed our network to play a uniquely focal role in American media. We have broken pivotal news stories and brought issues and artists to the spotlight that may have been overlooked.
We broadcast via satellite and Internet and have one of the most extensive and important sound archives in the world. With a network of approximately 200 affiliate stations, we are energizing independent community radio through collaboration, interactivity and program exchange throughout the network.
Pacifica Foundation established the concept of community radio in the United States when it created KPFA in 1949 in Berkeley, California. Today, Pacifica owns WBAI in New York City, WPFW in Washington DC, KPFT in Houston Texas, KPFK in Los Angeles, and KPFA in the San Francisco Bay Area.
