Houston modification 8:41 PM (ET)

The KPFT Treasurer said that an event that was not revenue producing would
be removed from the budget and that the corporate match had been severely
underestimated. The changes would still leave KPFT with surplus at the end
of FY12 of about $5,000 to $6,000. The committee discussed this proposal.

Motion: (Tracy Rosenberg) "To approve the modifications for the KPFT FY12
budget." (Passed without objection)

KPFA modification 8:47 PM (ET)

The committee again discussed the idea of putting the depreciation of
building improvements at 1925 MLK Way in the National Office FY12 budget,
not the KPFA FY12 budget.

WBAI draft FY12 budget review 9:06 PM (ET)

The committee discussed at length the WBAI FY12 budget proposal. It was
noted that due to not finding a meeting space the WBAI LSB had not passed
the draft budget. Participating in the discussion was WBAI General Manager
Berthold Reimers. The committee made a number of changes to the draft
budget proposal.

Motion: (Tracy Rosenberg) "To recommend to the PNB the noted modifications
to balance the WBAI FY12 budget submitted by R. Paul Martin and the WBAI
Finance Committee with a letter from the WBAI General Manager due no later
than September 19, 2011, at 8:00 PM (ET) acknowledging WBAI's
