Thanks to everyone who helped us raise nearly $81,000 during our Fall Pledge Drive!

It was a real team effort, with literally hundreds of people pitching in to keep up the momentum. Whether you pledged your financial support, made on-air appeals, answered phones, donated food, time, or thank-you gifts, YOU MADE IT HAPPEN!

Our goal was $120,000 and it was based on real needs. While we didn't get there, we all worked together in an upbeat way to express our gratitude to the community that sustains us. We made tremendous strides towards keeping KZYX moving forward in its mission of listener service. You have once again proven your commitment to keeping local public radio alive and well. Thank you!

FCC COMMISSIONER NICK JOHNSON ON KZYX. “All About Money” returns to KZYX on Friday, June 13, at 9 a.m., Pacific Time, with former FCC Commissioner Nicholas Johnson, who now teaches at the Iowa University School of Law. Our second guest is Sarah Morris, who is senior policy counsel for the Open Policy Institute at the New America Foundation. The show is a follow-up to our last show about how big telecom is pricing net neutrality — the Open Internet — out of the market. We also hope former FCC Chair Michael Copps will be a guest once the FCC starts to make more rulings on net neutrality.

Johnson said today: “The genius of the Internet has always been its openness. Anyone with an Internet connection can access any of its public content, from anywhere, at any time. Those features, built into the Internet’s architecture, are unfortunately not built into its law. The FCC has tried to remedy that, but today once again has run into opposition from the courts. Since the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has addressed how the FCC went about it, more than the desirability of its goal, we can hope that the Commission, and Congress if necessary, will move swiftly to get it done in the right way.”

For more about Johnson, see:
As a senior policy counsel for the Open Technology Institute at New America Foundation, Sarah Morris assists in the research and development of policy proposals related to open technologies, broadband access, and emerging technological issues.

Former FCC commissioner and chairman, and currently special adviser to Common Cause’s Media and Democracy Initiative, Michael Copps released a statement: “The Court’s decision today [see below] in Verizon v. the FCC is poised to end the free, open, and uncensored Internet that we have come to rely on. People depend on the Open Internet to connect and communicate with each other freely. Voters need it to inform themselves before casting ballots. Without prompt corrective action by the Commission to reclassify broadband, this awful ruling will serve as a sorry memorial to the corporate abrogation of free speech.”$file/11-1355-1474943.pdf
