I'm probably not going to renew my subscription to KBSU. It has really been stinking up the place lately.
They're letting sloooow talking George Prentice, who can deliver half the news in twice the time, have way too much air time, for one thing. For another, they've lately been preempting sometimes as much as half of any given half hour. It takes me usually around a half hour for my commute, and of late too much of NPR has been getting preempted for lame stories.I pay a subscription for NPR, not really to hear local reporters. Some of their stories are okay, but many, it seems to me, are just an effort to fill up some air time.
Another irritation is that BSU radio runs some story one afternoon, then runs the same one again the next morning, so you have to sit through it twice.
Perhaps BSU is trying to save money by broadcasting less NPR. Or perhaps it's trying to give its staff radio experience. I don't know. I just know that my listening enjoyment level is way down.
I've been enjoying my XM radio in lieu of BSU Radio. It at least delivers what I think I've paid for.
Update: Interesting exchange in the comment section.
