EAST BAY TIMES -- “I devoted my whole career working for KCBS and I loved the work and bringing the news to our listeners every day,” Raines said in a statement. “Then the newsroom turned into hostile territory for women and I tried to get management to do something. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would get fired for making these reports.”
Raines graduated from San Francisco State University with a major in broadcasting and joined KCBS in 1990. She was dismissed in May of last year.
