LAT finally mentions KPFK furor


Steve Carney, the freelancer who writes about radio for the L.A. Times Calendar, weighs in today on the KPFK brouhaha that broke more than a week ago. It's buried in a half-dozen paragraphs deep in a piece that opens with the move of KPFK parent Pacifica Radio's offices back to Berkeley from Washington and that also wraps in program changes at KFI (AM 640). It's thin, but by waiting he at least got to include the restoration of "The Car Show" to KPFK's Saturday lineup (reported here Thursday afternoon, I guess "exclusively" as they say). Not so lucky is the Los Angeles Business Journal, which has a piece on the KPFK situation by Darrell Satzman in next week's issue -- but which had to close the issue before L.A. Observed disclosed that "The Car Show" was saved from a premature death. The issue, by the way, is the Biz Journal's annual report on compensation for local executives -- always well read around town, for purely professional reasons.
