In other Public Radio Partnership news, big but not unexpected changes took place when, after over a year of media speculation and internal struggle, PRP president Gerry Weston was forced to step down from his post by the board of directors.
...As we approached the format change, it was obvious to all parties concerned, including the PRP board of directors and then president Gerry Weston (himself a former jazz director at WFPL and former Louisville Jazz Society president), that there simply was not enough financial support in the community to turn WFPK into a full time jazz station.
And there's apparently no shortage of resentment on the part of convention producers regarding the recent ouster of their former boss, Gerry Weston
, to whom this year's conclave was dedicated.
That may actually prove an attractive proposition to whoever ends up with the director post that Weston
vacated back in January (his successor is expected to be named as early as June 30th).
