Pacifica's iED Lydia Brazon has hired Miquel Calçada has as KPFK's General Manager
"KPFK radio has great talent and enormous potential and I look forward to working in collaboration with all members to tackle current challenges. Lew Hill's aspiration of independent media free from direct constraints is more relevant than ever before.
As a multilingual professional, who has traveled to over 80 countries where local people shared their heartfelt stories of success and disillusionment, my approach to working with all people including staff, volunteers, board members, and listeners, is regarded as respectful and compassionate.
I have 14 years of experience in public radio administration and production in Barcelona, and, over 18 years of experience as an owner of two radio stations which grew from $0 to $9 million in value. Community engagement is key to growth and resulted in building listenership progressively over the years, most recently, at KOPN in Missouri."
