Pacifca Hires New Executive Director

Pacifica Foundation is pleased to welcome Stephanie D. Wells as its new Executive Director. Wells, who lives in Los Angeles, stepped into her role as Executive Director on January 17, 2022.

Wells has over 35 years of executive experience in the non-profit, for-profit, and entertainment industries and has given her development expertise to educational, recreational, medical, and cultural organizations throughout the United States. Prior to working in the non-profit sector, she was a producer and writer for mainstream cable and network television. She has an excellent reputation of leadership, including fundraising, publicity, board-building, policy-building and strategic planning, and staff management.

Wells was selected after an extensive review of candidates for the Executive Director position. “I am excited to be a part of the dynamic Pacifica Network and am eager to continue building on the success of our stations and extensive archive library, always with the primary goal of meeting the needs of our listeners and our communities,” said Wells.

Pacifica’s Board of Directors’ Chair Alex Steinberg said, "We welcome our new Executive Director, to the Pacifica Foundation. Stephanie impressed the Pacifica National Board with her no-nonsense approach to complex issues and solid executive experience. We thank Lydia Brazon, our outgoing interim Executive Director, who got Pacifica safely through the onset of the Pandemic and has worked hard on stabilizing Pacifica’s finances. We are excited about moving forward with Ms. Wells and will do what we can to support her. “

DEMOCRACY NOW

Democracy Now Newsfeed

  • Ralph Nader: Biden's First Year Proves He Is Still a "Corporate Socialist" Beholden to Big Business

    As President Biden marks one year in office, we speak with former four-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader and The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel, who say Biden has failed so far to sell his agenda to the American people and bring about the transformative policy he campaigned on — from quelling the pandemic to passing his landmark Build Back Better legislation. The two also critique the U.S. mainstream press for asking "war-inciting questions," with Nader saying "the self-censorship of the press is overwhelming."

  • Setback for Democracy: Manchin & Sinema Join Senate Republicans to Block Voting Rights Legislation

    As President Biden marked one year in office this week, conservative Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema joined with Republican senators to block a proposed change to filibuster rules that would have allowed two voting rights bills to move forward, foreclosing the chance to stop hundreds of anti-voting laws passed after the 2020 election. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders blasted his colleagues for opposing the rules change, and Georgia's Raphael Warnock likened the fight for voting rights to the civil rights movement. We air excerpts from their speeches.

  • The Death of the Pathetic Cyber Ninjas: 'BradCast' 1/11/2022

    On today's BradCast, before we get to the "death" of the Ninjas and their ongoing clown show, President Biden and Vice President Harris traveled to Atlanta on Tuesday to call for U.S. Senate filibuster reform in order to pass voting rights and election protection legislation with a simple majority. That, in hopes of countering voter suppression and election subversion measures being adopted by GOP controlled states across the nation.

  • Latest UN Climate Conference was Predictably Disappointing

    The latest United Nations Climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, resulted in an agreement that started out as inadequate to meeting the climate catastrophe, and ended up being further watered down to appease oil and gas interests.
