UPDATED WITH PETITIONS
Dear Chancellor Thorp,
The screen grab image at the right is from the WRDU 106.1 website. They are using the good name of the University of North Carolina to promote the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.
I'm sorry to ruin your day, but this situation is intolerable. It is not a matter of free speech, it is a matter of integrity, honor and decency. Which is why I'm writing this public letter to ask why the University of North Carolina is associated in any way with a radio station that carries such despicable programming.
Unless UNC lawyers have really screwed up, there's bound to be a clause in a contract somewhere that allows the University to sever its relationship with scumbag organizations like WRDU 106.1. They should not be part of the Tarheel Sports Network. They should not be allowed to put our logo on their website.
And so, the ball is in your court. Please end UNC's relationship with WRDU. Not next year, not next month, not next week. Please end it now.
