What the Heck Is Going on with NPR??


Until about 3 years ago our local NPR station was classical music with Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Marketplace daily.  About 3 years ago, KUHF made the change to all news/talk. Well, I thought I had died and gone to Heaven.  Diane Rehm, Talk of the Nation, On Point, and others that were just down my alley.  It was too good to last. 
KUHF seems to have taken a stupid pill or something. Here's a list of some of the stupid pop culture programs that they are presenting now:
     The Dinner Party
     Bullseye
     WITS
     Ask Me Another
     Says You
It's like an audio People magazine.  And they completely canceled Talk of the Nation.  
What the heck is going on??

I too listen to NPR a lot and I wonder if the local station that carries it has a say in the programming... Michelle

Half the time I turn on NPR, listen for a few minutes and then turn it off. The talk radio offerings are awful.
Luckily our local NPR station plays a lot of classical music, although some of that is pretty dumb, too. Do I need to hear"Bolero" again?
Still, I give them money, because they are the only source for news and classical music on the radio in this place.

Florence -- Yes, NPR has some poor quality programs that I am sure has changed its audience. Sad. -- barbara.
