Alternative Holiday Programming Censored at WPFW

 
Protesting an abrupt holiday programming change that eliminates alternative views on “Independence Day” and world affairs, Concerned Members and Supporters of WPFW (CMS) is issuing a statement and demonstrating today, Friday, July 5, beginning at 12:30 p.m. outside the temporary radio station studios at 1819 L St., N.W. in Washington, D.C. These actions are in response to the decision by station manager John Hughes to pre-empt vital news and public affairs programming in favor of playing all music on July 4 and July 5. Friday’s protestors will rally in support of Jay Winter Nightwolf, veteran Native American programmer, who plans to broadcast Friday in defiance of the unannounced pre-emption.
