Thread Name: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
Subject: RE: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
Never before would I have thought that Bob Edwards would ever be replaced, and the insult of having absolutely no reason other than for the sake of change makes it that much worse What happened to loyalty, what happened to respect, what happened to recognizing an amazing talent?
So many of the articles I have read so far talk about needing younger listeners. That makes me smile. My sister (age 27) and I (age 34) listen every day to NPR because our parents listened every day. My children, ages 3 and 10 listen, and her kids so as well. Building loyalty happens over time, through quality and consistancy. When Mr. Edwards leaves, I do too, so does our financial support for NPR stations around the country.
I think it is the only way a listener can register a complaint that will be heard. I HATE to do it, but it is the only way to get a message across.
