Recently, our partners in the SF Chronicle have cut their entire audio team. And while this is a loss for the Bay Area this also impacts KALW listeners because we have been airing their flagship news podcast, Fifth and Mission, Mondays through Thursdays right after Crosscurrents. I spoke with KALW Executive Producer Ben Trefny to talk about the state of local media.
