Best Radio News (2004)
KPFT/90.1 FM Car crashes and warehouse fires are dramatic on TV, but they're way boring to listen to on the radio. So why do so many of the conservative news affiliates on the AM dial waste their time on them? They're scared to tackle issues that might offend those who line their dirty pockets, that's why. You, the listener, line the pockets of community-funded KPFT radio, and they sure aren't afraid to stick it to those who deserve it. KPFT's youthful staff digs deep into the issues that affect us all -- layoffs, chemical plant infractions, water supply concerns, activism, minority issues and police brutality -- and they're covered thoroughly and honestly by anchors Renee Feltz, Ernesto Aguilar and the rest of the dedicated staff. Tune in every weekday at 5:30 p.m. for a real alternative.
