Description
Series Description
"Three and a half years ago, KQED-FM relied on National Public Radio for its news programming, and classical music filled most of the station's air time. Audience measurement surveys documented a small listening audience. By the end of 1990, KQED-FM's morning news and information service was often beating the local, all news commercial station in certain audience categories. The local news segments tackled complicated stories about serious issues, and the work of the local news staff has earned it recognition and respect in the community. "I am submitting a number of our news and feature reports for consideration because as Acting News Director, and veteran of the 'bad old days,' I am enormously proud of what this young department (both in age and time on staff) has achieved. Two members of the staff are products of the station's own Minority Training Program, which offers a one year paid position to young journalists. "The following stories, both hard news and softer news features, are some examples of the work of the KQED-FM Radio News Department. Maia Krache reports on an academic freedom battle at U.C. Berkeley 12/6 Sally Eisele on San Francisco's shipping industry and the embargo 9/14 Harry Lin on a union organizing effort at an upscale food store 10/3 Thuy Vu on a legal debate over immigrant fishing rights 10/1 Peter Jon Shuler on Native American artifacts at a freeway site 12/3 Holly Quan on Pearl Harbor anniversary observance in Alameda, Ca. 12/7 Betsy Bayha on the arrival of the 'Denver Boot' in San Francisco 11/23"--1990 Peabody Awards entry form.
