Pull the plug on Lopate

We join in with many other producers here at WBAI to condemn the recent hiring of Leonard Lopate, a former WNYC host who was terminated for reasons including mulitple allegations by women regarding sexual harassment in the workplaceWe offer a message of solidarity to the women of WNYC, the women of WBAI as well as the producers that made the very difficult decision to walk away. We call on WBAI and Pacifica to listen to the women and to hold themselves accountable to their social justice mission. It is not too late to stand on the right side of history, to publicly renounce harassment in all of its forms, and to refuse to give a public platform to known abusers.
