commented on Steve Scher Abruptly Parts Ways With KUOW After Nearly Three Decades
Meh, you want scuttlebutt, cover the firing of the KPLU general manager a little while ago. There was shouting, histrionics, the whole nine. He wanted to end the jazz programming (which would be fine with me, but the whole identity of the station is based on it) and go head-to-head with KUOW.
Unfortunately, they fired him after he fired the engineering staff in favor of contractors they could pay lower wages and no healthcare on.
