What's up at WBUR...?
One of the complains heard over and over during the Jane Christo reign at WBUR was that they chose to forgo localness for the lure of making every show national, by syndicating them thru NPR, PRI, etc.
Paul La Camera has been in the General Managers job, and now wants the station to put down roots in Boston.
Paul La Camera wants formerly high-flying WBUR to put down civic roots
The question is.....if the station starts to emphasize "localness"...what does that do to the programming that has been paying the bills thru syndication?
