Detroit NPR station sued after bumping music for news
Chicago Tribune | Detroit Free Press
From Romenesko: "WDET-FM listeners claim they were tricked into contributing money to the Detroit public radio station during a pledge drive while station execs were secretly planning to junk locally produced music programming and replace it with national talk and public affairs shows... They've filed a class-action lawsuit."
Could it be argued that this is basically what happened at WETA-FM? (Actually the Trib story suggests exactly such a connection, citing WETA as another example in the trend.) Was there much warning when WETA ditched its classical programming?
