WLUW: Mini Update

By Jocelyn Geboy in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 18, 2007 8:55PM


So, since yesterday when we posted the literal scoop about WLUW's potential future as an independent, community, listener-sponsored radio station, we've gotten some more information.

First and foremost, we got an email from Craig Kois, who relayed the following to us:

"Jocelyn...Thanks for your detailing of Monday's meeting. I have forwarded the link to our staff since I was not able to take notes that evening as planned.

I do want to clarify that I am not okay with not being here for this final year of delivering our
community-based programming because I am still committed to our audience and to the current mission of WLUW. The idea that Shawn and I will be gone did not come from us nor from WBEZ.

Again, thanks for being at the Monday meeting and for spreading the word about what is going on."

Second we found out that our good pal, Scott Smith, at Time Out Chicago wrote a piece, and he got the bigwigs to talk to him. Nice work, Scott.

Thirdly, we got an email from Robert Feder, lamenting the fact we didn't link to him (or use his first name). The first name thing should be a compliment -- we figured if you're into radio goings on, you know who Feder is. However, the lack of link was an oversight on our part, not an intentional slight.

Lastly, it has been noted several times in the comments of the original article that the students of WNUR are not required to participate in the radio station as part of their studies at Medill. Point noted.

So, that's all the news that's fit to print ... for now.
