To Pacifica Network listeners,al jazeera logo

Thank you listening to Pacifca's exclusive broadcasts of Al Jazeera English and for supporting your local community radio station. It is with great regret that we must report that Al Jazeera English is no longer available for distribution in the USA.

This happened because Current TV was sold to Al Jazeera and with this broadcast network here in the USA, they are creating "Al Jazeera America." This is an entirely different organization, being currently built from former Current TV staff and new hires. All broadcasts of Al Jazeera English will cease in the USA on August 20th.

Pacifica has approached Al Jazeera America about being able to distribute their content for radio, the way we did with Al Jazeera English. However, they are not prepared at this time to discuss this possibility, partly because they are not fully organized and partly because they are working with stricter distribution procedures and are not sure if they will be able to make it available.

The afternoon Al Jazeera edited by Pacifica Radio ceased last month and as of August 20th the morning program will not be available.

As does your local community radio station, Pacifica is ceaselessly looking for ways to bring you excellent news and information. Thank you for listening.

Disaster and emergency reporting are key components of KMUD Newsroom production as well as part of the overall mission of the station. Several years ago the News Department organized an Emergency Response Team (ERT) to assist news staff in reporting during emergency events such as fire, major landslides, floods and earthquakes.  We are now in progress of expanding this service. The ERT includes people who are able to send photos and audio clips to the newsroom, others who can travel to KMUD at a moment's notice to help during a major emergency, and people who produce stories for the Local News. In response to a scary fire season projected by CAL FIRE, KMUD News has prepared a series of classes that can serve as training for people newly interested in helping with this effort or as a review for previous ERT members. Anyone who wants to work with KMUD News is invited to the upcoming trainings.

Classes focusing on the Emergency Response Team training will be held this June and July at the KMUD studio at 1144 Redway Drive, Redway. Classes start promptly at 1 pm and run until 3 pm, with more free-form conversation after the class for people who want to collaborate further.

Please RSVP for all classes, so plans can be made for the needed seating. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • June 9: Writing for Radio -Emergency Response focused skill-building, using disaster scenarios
  • June 23: Emergency Response Reporting - Disaster scenario analysis and live Emergency Response radio reporting
  • July 14: Guest Professionals, TBA.  Emergency Reporting and Interacting with Agency Personnel; Disaster scenario analysis and live Emergency Response radio reporting

World Press Freedom Day

Freedom of expression and communication are fundamental human rights

Today World Press Freedom Day (May 3), we salute thousands of Community radios that exercise their right to communicate. Radios that work in diverse conditions, bringing together ideas and perceptions that are transformed in innovative communication processes. Community radios being managed by women, indigenous communities, youth groups, in urban and rural areas.

For the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters, AMARC (Association Mondiale Des Radiodiffuseurs Communautaires), freedom of expression and communication are fundamental rights, recognized in international treaties and that should be guaranteed as such by all democratic states. These rights including fair and equitable access to the media, should be protected and extended in the context of rapidly evolving transformations introduced by new information and communication technologies.
