Friends of Community Media
Notes from the 1/11/20
video conference meeting
Because of the difficult road conditions due to bad weather,
the meeting scheduled for this day has been rescheduled for Saturday 1/18/20, 2:00
PM at the KKFI annex room, 39th & Main rear door.
Spencer Graves , and Tom Crane met at KKFI and Craig Lubow
met remotely over computer. The video
conference was over Zoom software which worked well allowing video of everyone
to be seen and heard. Craig provided
music during the conversation.
Spencer briefed us on possibly becoming an affiliate of
ProPublica. Potentially, an
assistantship could be funded through this source for FCM
with a local university. This could
possibly be done through NAIRC (National association for computer reporting). Spencer has made contacts but has had no
response. This week, he will follow up
with results for the 1/18 meeting.
It was suggested that we collaborate with the Kansas City
Press Club, and Tom will follow up with them this week.
Proposed for a forum as mentioned earlier – “Media in a Time
of War” – with Amy Goodman which could be a fundraiser for FCM
and KKFI. Tom will speak with Bill
Clause on this to be reported on the 1/18 meeting.
Craig made some contacts for a presentation we had discussed
earlier on “Religion and the Media”.
Looks like the All-Souls calendar is booked until March. He will follow up on those contacts and speak
with Richard about the All-Souls calendar.
