PURDUE UNIVERSITY News-Talk WBAA-A/WEST LAFAYETTE, IN won't be dropping PRX and WBEZ/CHICAGO's "THIS AMERICAN LIFE" after all.
After the station's GM MIKE SAVAGE announced that it would drop the show in AUGUST because the show is available through PANDORA (NET NEWS 5/17), the station reversed course last week, posting on its website that "A critical component of our mission is to continuously evaluate and improve our service. We do not take programming changes lightly and only do so after undertaking due diligence relative to listenership surveys and member feedback. We are glad to have yours. After considerable listener feedback, THIS AMERICAN LIFE will remain on WBAA. We are evaluating the schedule and working to select a weekend time that will best showcase the program on WBAA."
