Watch the Save KLSD Preview


Watch Save KLSD 1-hour Version FREE!



After 4 1/2 years of attending media conferences,  filming interviews, editing, and fighting for Media Reform, Save KLSD is now available on DVD. 

Why should we care that the mass media has been deregulated and is owned overwhelmingly by a handful of large corporations? Because concentration of ownership in a few hands threatens competition and the diversity and localism of content. Find out more — watch the preview of Save KLSD, a documentary film about the grassroots activism to save San Diego's progressive talk radio KLSD/AM1360, the lack of local, diverse content on our airwaves across America and the efforts to ensure broadcasters meet their public interest responsibilities.

Narrated by broadcasters Jon Elliott and Bree Walker, the film includes Bill Moyers and Phil Donahue; progressive talk hosts Stacy Taylor, Amy Goodman, Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, Cenk Uygur, and David Shuster; FCC Commissioners Jon Adelstein and Michael Copps; MSNBC's Richard Wolffe; former Obama administration official Van Jones; authors/professors Marjorie Cohn and Eric Klinenberg; Common Cause CEO Bob Edgar; co-founders of media reform group Robert McChesney and John Nichols, also of The Nation, local activists Barbara Cummings, Joan Little and musician Charlie Imes; local notables Congressman Bob Filner, San Diego Council Member Marti Emerald, Channel 10's J.W. August, and Voice of San Diego's Andrew Donohue.

  Film Review by Mark Gabrish Conlan 

Fortunately, the filmmakers — director Jon Monday and writer Jennifer C. Douglas — didn’t dwell on the ins and outs of the KLSD campaign but made their film much more about media consolidation in general, interviewing major figures on what’s left of the Left media in this country. (Read more)

LINK, please get this show back on your schedule the coming weeks, as Portland folks need to see it since Thom Hartmann's former station KPOJ just yesterday switched formats in the EXACT SAME fashion as KLSD did when I lived down there when KLSD was shut down. It is needed here now, and I'm sure Thom Hartmann will direct viewers to LINK if it is showing in the coming weeks.

Radio stations I once enjoyed are still there, but instead of talk shows with a variety of topics such as local, state, and national politics, sports, entertainment, and all important local-issues emphasis - now a steady ration of conservative talk due to concentration of ownership in the hands of the few. This is a sad and dangerous trend. If you value diversity - watch Save KLSD to learn more and how you can help reverse this tragic trend.

Thank you for showing this important documentary - an educated electorate is critical to our democracy and having thoughtful, intelligent media outlets for commentary and discussion is imperative to the process. This film magnifies the problem of inequitable and unjust behind-the-scenes decision making that has resulted in our current partisan broadcast environment.

I have seen this excellent documentary - corporate-owned media is one of the most crucial issues we must expose and overcome if we are to be an informed electorate and citizenry.
