Our quarterly live broadcast Connect the Bay is your connection to the issues that drive life around the Bay Area: housing, jobs, homelessness, transportation, climate change and the related "New Normal" of year-round fire seasons and prospective disasters from earthquakes to floods.
Watch our latest program (from September 15, 2019) called Erasing the Gap: Conversation with Women Leaders. Our guests include Karin Demarest Vice President for Programs at the Sonoma Community Foundation, Lynda Hopkins Sonoma County Supervisor Dist. 5, Dr. Jerlena Griffin-Desta Chief of Staff/Associate Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and Diversity at Sonoma State University, and Stephanie Manieri Santa Rosa City School Dist. 6. We spoke with US House Leader - Nancy Pelosi, Co-Founder of the National Farmworkers Association - Dolores Huerta, and President of the American Association of University Women - Kim Churches, as well as many other leaders from around the Bay Area discussing the role of women in leadership positions in business, technology, politics, and social justice.
Remember: Connect the Bay starts with you.

On June 30, 2019, we presented our second edition of the program. And we're happy to say that we had two new partners for this work: CreaTV and San José Spotlight
The subject of that program was gentrification and displacement around the Bay Area, from San José to Santa Rosa. We featured stories about Oakland and the Roseland neighborhood of Santa Rosa, and we'll be talking with elected officials, non-profit leaders and community members from the South Bay and the peninsula.
Watch our first broadcast (from Sunday March 31, 2019). In this first episode, we examine the region's top challenge: housing. We hear from experts and from those whose voices aren't usually included in these discussions. Find us on KRCB TV in the North Bay, KPJK TV in the South Bay, and KRCB FM Radio 91.
