I, Kiyana Turner, would like the opporunity to be instrumental in further promoting KPFK, its programming, events and the Pacifica Foundation.

Should I become a member of the Local Station Board, I will work with my fellow members to keep KPFK progressing in terms of increasing listeners, listener sponsorship, programming and promotions.

Thank you in advance for your support and consideration.

I hope to serve you well!!!

Optional Questions


In what ways are the station moving in a positive direction, that you would want to continue or perhaps improve?
KPFK is moving in a positive direction in terms of its programming and content development. Along with KPFK’s progressive content, the introduction of a radio show crossing over into television is also a step in the right direction. I want to be instrumental in the continued growth and innovation of KPFK.

In what ways are the station moving in a negative direction, that you would want to stop or change? What changes would you work for?
I would like to see KPFK at more events throughout Southern California.

What key experience, connections, skills or traits would you bring to the Local Station Board to advance the station's mission?
– Audio Engineering
– Television Production
– Creative and technical writing
– Networking
– Roughly 5, collective, years in radio (call screening, promotions, audio engineering, research, video editing, on-air broadcasting)

What ideas do you have for helping the station and the Pacifica Foundation meet the financial challenges currently being faced?
KPFK may benefit from networking with like-minded organizations, in Southern California, in an effort to increase listenership and listener sponsors. There are MANY non-corporate, progressive organizations whose ideas and missions are very much in line with KPFK. It might be beneficial for KPFK to partner with these organizations – that don’t require the exchange of funds – during certain events so that we can increase listenership and listener funds.

So, what do you think ?
