    NPR's turn to feel the burn.

    Two fewer chances to "join the conversation." I'm still waiting for the sports talk show host who is trying to get people to call to invite callers to "join the conversation" like most NPR hosts and hostesses.

    This really surprised me. After the McDonald's windfall they got a few years ago, I thought public radio was set.
     
  4. I'm still waiting for one with opposable thumbs.

    As long as, during the course of the "conversation" you can name your three points, A., B. and 3.

    The thing behind this whole move is the tacit admission that NPR West was a bad tactical move. NPR "got" Tavis Smiley for a talk show that lasted maybe two years, then ran Day to Day from out west as a mid-day show to supplant later transmittals of Morning Edition (which actually got re-run as fresh updates warranted out on the West Coast). NPR wanted a bi-coastal Morning Edition to justify NPR West's opening and the putting-out-to-pasture of Bob Edwards.

    This. Failed. Badly.

    This is quite meta. NPR reporter who devised a series of stories on how people deal with layoffs, gets laid off, reports on herself.

    I didn't leave NPR, NPR left me.

    Maybe they had invested it in newspaper stock.
     

  10. Feh. Ketzel only did the occasional "garden" story once a week.
