YOUR PUBLIC RADIO CORP. noncommercial News-Talk-Jazz WYPR/BALTIMORE Managing News Editor SUNNI KHALID has exited the station, and BALTIMORE SUN media reporter DAVID ZURAWIK reports that KHALID's departure after nine years may have been due to comments KHALID made on a friend's FACEBOOK page.
ZURAWIK did not say what KHALID may have posted but noted that KHALID was on probation for about a month before his departure for the comments.
KHALID worked for several newspapers, the VOICE OF AMERICA, and NPR before joining WYPR to help launch the station's news department.
