Grigsby Hubbard appointed the Interim General Manager of WPFW Radio
It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Grigsby Hubbard as interim General Manager of WPFW effective immediately. Mr. Hubbard was one of the founders of WPFW and has maintained a commitment to the station for over 35 years. His involvement actually began before the station even went on the air. He is well known and respected by virtually all stakeholders of WPFW. Mr. Hubbard has decades of managerial experience in both the nonprofit and for profit sectors.

I would like to thank Ron Pinchback, outgoing WPFW General Manager, for his years of service and commitment to WPFW and Pacifica and wish him well in his future endeavors.

I will be working closely with the LSB in the selection of a permanent general manager for WBAI as provided in the Pacifica By-laws. I look forward to collaboration with WPFW staff and management and the WPFW Local Station Board in this transition period to ensure the future success and stability of a station cherished by many in our nation's capital.
In Peace, Grace Aaron Chair of the Pacifica National Board Interim Executive Director of the Pacifica Foundation
