WUNC's "The State of Things" is going off the air

I'm missing Frank Stasio already:

The hour-long program, which has been airing weekdays at noon and also at eight in the evening since 2001, has successfully served residents of North Carolina and beyond for nearly two decades since 1999. With topics ranging from politics to the arts to societal issues and music, the show has served to highlight what has been happening across the state of North Carolina.

As the media landscape has been shifting, WUNC has been working to reach new audiences and stay on top of audience trends. The talented staff that has been working on The State of Things will be re-directed to new WUNC projects that will enhance WUNC’s service to the community.

Change is bad. We fear change! Just kidding, but seriously. Frank has a way of exposing issues that make them more understandable, and he always ends up asking the questions that are chirping for attention in my head. As far as that "media landscape shifting," it's poorly thought-out moves like this that are shifting it in the wrong direction.

Everyone should go to the WUNC link...

and leave a comment for them. Maybe if enough people (and especially supporters) make a stink they'll rethink this a bit.
