KPCC president to address changes on the air

bill-davis-kpcc.jpgKPCC is taking the unusual step of having president Bill Davis stop in to "Airtalk" and chat with Larry Mantle about the recent programming changes. (He commented about A Martinez and Madeleine Brand back in August.) The station has posted a blog item announcing Davis' appearance, scheduled for 11:40 to noon this morning.

As we know you've noticed, recent changes to the programming lineup and the addition of a new host or two have given KPCC a bit of a makeover.

These changes include the cancellation of Patt Morrison's show after six years, though she remains on staff as a special correspondent. Additionally, Madeleine Brand, co-host of our morning show Brand & Martinez and formerly of The Madeleine Brand Show, chose to resign just last Friday.

We understand that these are two huge changes that directly impact our listeners and we've been reading every single one of the comments you've left on our website and our social media channels.

KPCC President Bill Davis joins Larry Mantle on AirTalk Friday from 11:40 a.m.-12 p.m. to discuss the changes and what they mean for the future of KPCC and you, our valued listener.
