Free Speech Radio News is the independently produced progressive radio newscast that airs on over 100 stations across the country, including WMNF 88.5 FM on its Evening News program every night at 6:00 p.m.
The majority of the national and international news program's funding comes from the Pacifica Radio Network, which has had its own issues with funding over the years. Now that lack of funding is putting this newscast in a perilous financial situation.
On Tuesday, a press release was issued by Nathan Moore, the General Manager of FSRN, who painted a rather dire letter scenario to its supporters, calling for financial help. Moore says Pacifica owes the program around $160,000, putting FSRN more than $80,000 in the red.
