Muriel Tillinghast Named New WBAI Interim General Manager [cached]

As the Executive Director of the Pacifica Foundation, and in consultation and with the recommendation of LaVarn Williams, CFO of the Foundation, I announce the appointment of Muriel Tillinghast as the interim General Manager of WBAI beginning February 1, 2010.

At the same time, I want to extend my thanks to LaVarn Williams for all she has done to move WBAI forward through some very difficult times. She will continue to show her concern for WBAI, and will be working with Muriel and the Finance Staff to continue moving ahead. As the CFO of Pacifica she is in a unique position to help WBAI and all of the Pacifica stations.

Conn Hallinan, who is the KPFA ... [cached]

Conn Hallinan, who is the KPFA LSB chair and a regular columnist for the Berkeley Daily Planet, opined that, "We don't know that the information is false because LaVarn has not responded."

Ironically the Pacifica National Board finance committee met on the same night the article appeared. At the meeting LaVarn Williams stated that she did not authorize or give instructions for the transfer of any funds from KPFA to the National Office.
In fact, when LaVarn Williams as a director of Pacifica National Board tried to inspect the WBAI books back in 2005, she was blocked by the then Pacifica executive director.
Grace Aarons, in order to stem the tide of bleeding at WBAI asked LaVarn Williams to fill in as interim CFO because LaVarn is a capable financial manager who also has intimate knowledge of Pacifica finances.
LaVarn has managed to slowly bring WBAI and Pacifica back to solvency.
Grace Aarons also asked LaVarn to fill in as interim general manager of WBAI.
LaVarn just oversaw the most successful fundraising drive at WBAI in years.
LaVarn Williams and Grace Aarons should be getting kudos for doing a yeoman's job of trying to reverse the years of mismanagement at WBAI and Pacifica.

Interim CFO Lavarn Williams was with the team from Pacifica that came to WBAI in April and she had her own response to the charges of racism that are being thrown around by those who would have WBAI's financial situation get worse and drag the rest of Pacifica down into bankruptcy: Play 0:50 ≡download 197 KB.
