During my first year-plus as President of the American Council of the
Blind, the organization was fortunate in that revenues more than covered
our numerous projects and activities.  Unfortunately, like the Nation as
a whole, the past few months have proven far less positive and thus, the
need for this announcement.

I am writing to notify everyone that for budgetary reasons, it has
become necessary to relieve Chrissie Cochrane of her responsibilities as
ACB Radio Manager effective on May 1st of this year.  This was an
extremely difficult decision, given Chrissie's dedication to ACB Radio
and her popularity among its listeners.

Beginning May 1st, management of ACB Radio will be handled by a team of
volunteers, led by long-time programmer Larry Turnbull.  Assisting him
through the balance of the year will be Paul Edwards, Chairperson of the
Board of Publications, Marlaina Lieberg, ACB Secretary and programmer,
Melanie Brunson and myself.  While not an ideal situation, Larry is
fully committed to this effort as are the other members of the volunteer
management team.

It is my sincere hope that ACB, through the efforts of our Development
Director and the volunteers who are actively involved in fund-raising,
will be in a position early next year to once again employ a paid
Manager for ACB Radio.

Since the buck stops with the President, if you have questions or
concerns please feel free to e-mail me and I will be as responsive as
possible.  You may reach me at mitch.pomerantz@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Mitch Pomerantz, President
American Council of the Blind
