A. Live streaming motion
Submitted by Janet Kolbren, 9/13/14
Modified by Janet Kobren, 10/17/14

The LSB encourages expanded airing of livestreamed and archived audio-video material using     the KPFA video channel on KPFA’s present and future websites. This audio-video material may    be coordinated with KPFA’s audio program on FM radio and the website.

Local events can be audio-video streamed in real time and/or filmed by one of several KPFA       workers and volunteers currently experienced in this area, and apprentices are especially        encouraged to be trained to create and post audio-video livestream footage.

On site audio-video coverage of cultural gatherings, big local news and community events not     reported by corporate-sponsored media can help put KPFA in the forefront as a radio media             resource at a relatively low cost.
