   According to the article in today's Lowell Sun, as part of the deal Lydon 
was supposed to head up a new communications department and U Mass Lowell 
was to build Lydon a studio for him to broadcast his show. The show is 
currently produced at WGBH in Boston.

  The article also says that Lydon was informed that his U Mass Lowell 
contract will not be renewed when it expires in December in order to give 
him ample time to find other sponsors.

   Here is a link to the Lowell Sun article regarding the end of the Chris 
Lydon/UML deal:
