Oh, not the BPP!

The New York Times announced that the Bryant Park Project will end later this month after taking NPR into a hybrid of radio and social media that attracted audience members like, well, ME. I have recently fallen in love with this social media/Gen X/new NPR audience program. I am very disappointed. This highlights the need for us to support NPR, which, of course, means supporting WOSU locally. Projects like this don’t have the funding to really take hold and flourish before financial pressures put them on the chopping block. And, by the way, if more of us in the generation targeted by BPP were giving, we’d be more likely to keep radio/social media hybrids long-term.

*sigh*
