Globe articles on WCRB, WGBH

No doubt you saw the quote from Ms. Christo at the very end of the
article. Sounds to me as if she is already campaigning to be WGBH-FM's
next GM. How to you suppose the brilliant, if utterly self-centered
and self-absorbed martinet would make out in the WGBH culture?

It's mentioned that "In the mid-1980s, former WBUR station manager
Jane Christo jettisonedclassical music and converted the sleepy Boston
University station toan all-news-and-talk format. Within just a few
years, ’BUR owned theupscale NPR demographic..."
I do remember something like that. (btw does anyone remember if WBUR
used to have a show called Firesign World on Sunday nights which
featured comedy such as Firesign Theater?)
