WBUR radio today announced that its longtime (11 years) talk 
show "The Connection" will cease production on Friday, August
5th, 2005.  Host Dick Gordon has already cleared out his 
desk and fill-in hosts will anchor the program until then.
Tom Ashbrook's "On Point" will move from its 7:00 pm until
9:00 pm slot to the former "Connection" time period.  Besides
Gordon, several staff-members invloved in the daily production
of the show have also been terminated.  Interim station director
Peter Fiedler cited cost reasons and flat ratings.
Flat is a bit of strange word...did he expect ratings to 
surge non-stop until they reached 100%?
