RHODE ISLAND Attorney General PATRICK C. LYNCH has given final approval of the sale of noncommercial WRNI-A/PROVIDENCE by BOSTON UNIVERSITY to RHODE ISLAND PUBLIC RADIO.
"Our long-standing belief has always been that public radio in RHODE ISLAND is best served by local ownership and control," said WBUR GROUP GM PAUL LA CAMERA. "The culmination of this sale achieves that objective, and we're confident that WRNI will thrive going forward."
