Today, as the New Year begins (on Earth, which still tell us that spring is the measure of the renewing year), radio host Sonali starts her new show on Pacifica -- "Rising Up with Sonali"!

She followed the radical Lila Garrett Mondays at 7:00 am) on KPFK in Los Angeles with inaugural guest like Green 2016 presidential candidate Jill Stein.

The show follows on the heels of her in-depth interview format show Uprising!, which has become a collective of female voices on KPFK FM. Sonali's show still runs daily on KPFA, Berkeley.

"Rising Up with Sonali" has a channel for video and is in the vein of Letters and Politics with Mitch Jeserich and the classic DemocracyNow! with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez -- a daily, unimbedded and in-depth war and peace report.

The end of an era…and a new beginning: March 19 was the final day of Uprising with Sonali. After debuting in August 2003, it became the longest-running drive-time program in So. California hosted by a woman. A brand new show, Rising Up With Sonali, takes it place.
