FEBRUARY 15th has been declared "MICHAEL KRASNY Day" in SAN FRANCISCO by Mayor ED LEE.
“MICHAEL is a BAY AREA treasure,” said VP/GM JO ANNE WALLACE.. ”Since FEBRUARY of 1993, MICHAEL KRASNY’s FORUM interviews have set the gold standard for intelligence, depth and listener involvement.”

On this occasion of 20 years of working in the Promised Land with dedicated people and educating and serving the public, conversing daily with authors, newsmakers, politicians, world leaders, artists, entertainers and scientists, I celebrate the good fortune the years and a wonderful journalistic team have brought.”
