Re: “GSU students get internships, late-night GPB TV programming in exchange for WRAS airtime

GPB, as a state funded educational entity, should have provided GSU students any and all opportunities provided by this 'partnership' free and clear. They've literally found a bag of money worth millions of dollars and Teya Ryan is laughing all the way to the bank. Nice trade for putting up with Chip Rogers for a year or so, eh?

Re: “The Whigs cancel GPB in-studio performance

Huge Kudos to the Whigs for standing tall with #SaveWRAS... #collegeradiomatters and GPB still doesn't get it.

Re: “Album 88 students to GPB: 'We are pursuing every route possible to ensure that this deal does not last'

I’m still amazed by GPB’s lack of professional ‘due diligence’ to not recognize that a ‘deal’ such as this would, from the get go, alienate tens of thousands of Atlantans. Not an ideal way to debut in the nations 9th largest radio market,eh? The only answer that I can come up with is, that in their lust for a terrestrial signal in Atlanta, all else is overlooked. That also would explain the ethical lapse of not involving the main stakeholders, the GSU Students and Album88 Staff, in the discussions. GPB knew that to involve the Students in the discussion would make it near impossible to craft a ‘partnership’ that so favors GPB. For a public media outlet whose ‘core mission is education’, GPB should be jumping over backwards to provide GSU and its Students with the opportunities that are it’s part in this contract (internships, etc), with no strings attached! Not riding into town on the coattails of college students who have managed, staffed, programmed, and paid for this diverse, cultural treasure that is Album88.
