KFAI Faces Financial Shortfall

As KFAI heads into the start of its fall pledge drive on Wednesday, September 17, the station faces a fresh financial crisis. Without a major increase in revenue, KFAI will come up more than 100-thousand dollars short of its budgeted goal by the end of the year. 

This impending shortfall can be linked to a consistently downward trend in listenership, prompting the station’s board of directors, staff and volunteers to ask some difficult questions about what it will take to ensure KFAI’s future.

We asked reporter Art Hughes to take a look at some of the issues the organization faces.
