NPR Cancels The ‘BPP’ (Bryant Park Project)?!?

NPR Is Canceling The 'BPP'

I was surprised, disappointed and angry to read on the BPP blog that NPR is canceling my fav. online radio news program the Bryant Park Project. You can get a sense of the outrage on the Bryant Park Project blog at www.npr.org/blogs/bryantpark/2008/07/nyt_npr_is_canceling_the_bpp.html They were pretty much the only daily news radio program that were getting it right in terms of building an audience minus the regular shock jock tactics. They were also the only group that was willing to call things like they really were. They were probably too smart for their own good. They also had a site that made their online stories easy to reblog after the fact. Hopefully something can be done to keep things going after next Friday but I won’t hold my breath. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Michael,

    I want to do something nice for the BPP guys. Do you think you could help me think of how to make a (not corny) graphical collage cool kind of a think of all the staff?

    Huh. Never heard about it (color me disconnected). However, if I might recommend the WNYC's the Brian Lehrer Show for a news program that doesn't do shock jock, is tapped into the blogging community, and is of course smart, insightful, sliced bread, etc.
