Oops, we didn't mean to fire Bob Edwards! Actually we didn't but that's what many people seem to think. NPR has been pummeled with letters, phone calls, and emails ever since it announced Bob Edwards was being replaced as host of Morning Edition. WILL has received more mail on this that when we (oops!) cancelled Car Talk. And like always when somebody in public radio makes an unpopular move, some listeners are threatening to cut their support. So for the record, can we establish that WILL did not fire Bob Edwards? I don't like to see him leave Morning Edition either, as you might have read in my earlier post. Still, I'm not going to quit this project and I hope you won't either. And even after the way NPR handled this, neither is Bob Edwards.
