The turmoil at PACIFICA noncommercial WBAI/NEW YORK continues, with the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reporting that PD BERNARD WHITE has been put on 10-day suspension that WHITE characterizes as a termination. The move follows the removal of Station Manager ANTHONY RIDDLE last week.
STEVE BROWN, a member of WBAI's governing Local Station Board, told the NEWS' DAVID HINCKLEY that the station has been serving an increasingly narrow audience under WHITE and that "This will be the beginning of a renaissance for WBAI."
