NPR CEO Resignation -
UPDATED!
NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller resigned this morning in the wake of a scandal involving an undercover video tape.  The tape, released to the public Tuesday, shows former-NPR fundraiser Ron Schiller criticizing conservatives and questioning whether NPR needs Federal funding.  While Vivian Schiller quickly condemned the video it was not enough to save her job.  This latest controversy comes as Congress is considering the state of funding for public media.  On today’s broadcast, we talk with WHRO Public Media Chief Executive Officer Bert Schmidt about these recent developments and what they might mean for National Public Radio.  Call in with your questions or comments to 757-440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240.
