Alan Riggs, general manager of St. Augustine's College's radio station, wants its listeners to know that he has some things in store that they'll like.
Only thing is, he can't tell them what they are.
"I'm not at liberty to discuss them right now," Riggs told me.
Lots of people, mainly those in Southeast Raleigh, where WAUG-AM's signal is strongest, wish he would.Soon.
If anyone needs to get used to criticism, it's Riggs, who has been called everything but a ham sandwich since making what he insisted was "just a business decision."
The criticism he most dislikes is that his decision was based on race or his personal life.Riggs, a white dude, is married to a sistuh, and they have two children -- a fact some listeners think somehow influenced his decision.One could go crazy trying to decipher that line of reasoning, but callers haven't been shy about criticizing his choice of wife or him.
"I had to do what's right for St. Augustine's," said Riggs, WAUG's manager since February.
When I asked Riggs if WAUG has a duty to provide a talk forum, he said, "We're open to anyone who wants to come in and present me with a talk-based format that'll focus on ... this community.
"But I can't do it for three hours" a day, he said.
