Today on Your Call: Friday Media Roundtable

Feb 10, 2012


On today’s Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about the changing media landscape in Northern California. Last year, KUSF abruptly went off the air; the Progressive Green 960 became Conservative 960; KGO recently went through a major shakeup; and the nonprofit Bay Citizen announced plans to merge with the nation's oldest investigative news organization, the Center for Investigative Reporting. What do you make of these changes? And what do you want from Bay Area media outlets? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
