The court battle rages on between Pacifica Foundation and local WBAI employees. After a hearing yesterday a judge ruled that Pacifica could not fire its employees but allowed programming from the national Pacifica network to be piped into the New York City facility. Another court date was set for October 18.
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that staff showed up to the station Thursday and all the locks had been changed. Staff members broke into the station and said they found the place in a shambles.
Pacifica claims the station’s debt is out of control and it cannot even make payroll.
Employees claim the progressive leaning station is being shut down because it aired anti-Trump programming
