After 17 years on the air, one of the longest-running community news programs, Free Speech Radio News, will go dark after its last weekly broadcast today. The worker-run news collective produced a daily newshour for the Pacifica Radio network until 2014, when it switched to weekly. FSRN helped pioneer a decentralized grassroots model for independent international journalism with reporters covering issues in their communities but says it has struggled to find “firm financial footing.”
