Supporters of college radio station KUSF rallied today in front of City Hall, a prelude to what they hope will be some action on the issue by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors at its meeting today.
The Snitch reports that Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi has pledged to introduce a resolution "in support of the volunteers who are trying to keep 90.3 FM a community radio station."
The University of San Francisco sold its KUSF license last week as part of a complicated series of transactions affecting four stations in the Bay Area radio market. The free form student-run station is no longer on the air.
"I wish we could do more," Mirkarimi told The Snitch. "This is another corporate slam against public access radio. It's a tragedy for USF to not consult the community and give it a chance to save the station before they sold it off."
