KPFA’s recent fund drive ended ahead of schedule, and exceeded its goal by more than $20,000.

The station’s biggest fundraising totals came from its newest show:  Uprising with Sonali Kolhatkar, which airs at 8 am.  Following an ambitious off-air fundraising campaign, Kolhatkar is set to follow in the footsteps of Democracy Now! by launching her show as a national television program on Free Speech TV.

KPFA’s new general manager Quincy McCoy has announced to staff an ambitious campaign to shrink the length of KPFA’s next fund drive, scheduled to begin in October — listen for details in the weeks to come.

Meanwhile, check out KPFA’s newest book talks by Diane Ackerman, Naomi Klein, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Reese Erlich, Vandana Shiva, Molly Antopol and others here.
