We’ve come a long way since the early days, broadcasting local news and music from the basement of Pasadena City College, to our emergence as a leader in Southland broadcast journalism.

KPCC has recently made ambitious strides to expand its award-winning reporting and editorial staff, embrace new media opportunities, engage tomorrow’s multi-platform audiences and find even more ways to serve our community.

As we know you’ve noticed, recent changes to the programming lineup and the addition of a new host or two have given KPCC a bit of a makeover.

These changes include the cancellation of Patt Morrison’s show after six years, though she remains on staff as a special correspondent. Additionally, Madeleine Brand, co-host of our morning show Brand & Martinez and formerly of The Madeleine Brand Show, chose to resign just last Friday.

We understand that these are two huge changes that directly impact our listeners and we’ve been reading every single one of the comments you’ve left on our website and our social media channels.

KPCC President Bill Davis joins Larry Mantle on AirTalk Friday from 11:40 a.m.-12 p.m. to discuss the changes and what they mean for the future of KPCC and you, our valued listener.

We also want to hear from you. Please leave your questions in the comments below. Our producers will also be screening calls and feeding them to Larry and Mr. Davis in studio live during the show. You can also leave questions on our Facebook page.

Thank you for all your continued support, we will get to as many of your questions as possible during this special segment.


What’s behind the decisions to cancel some programs and expand others? Why the shifts in schedules and on-air personalities? What do you like about the new changes? What do you think should have been done differently? What would you like to see more of?


Bill Davis, President and CEO of Southern California Public Radio
