KNKX Public Statement 6-4-21

On June 1, weather commentator Cliff Mass wrote a blog post attacking KNKX staff. The post is one of many Dr. Mass has published since our station ended his weather segment ten months ago. These posts contain numerous mistruths that attempt to discredit KNKX and our reputation, as well as the reputations of our staff members (both past and current), our board, and our Community Advisory Council.

His latest blog includes attacks on our former director of content, Matt Martinez, and our social justice reporter, Lilly Fowler. Mass’ comments are inflammatory and not true. The KNKX management team stands behind Matt, Lilly, and the high journalistic and ethical standards they and our entire news team exemplify.

KNKX remains committed to serving a large, regional audience with important, in-depth reporting. We can think of no team better suited for our work in service of the betterment of the community.
