Correction to Dogfish Head CEO Story

Last week, it was  erroneously reported that Dogfish Head Founder and President Sam Calagione was stepping aside as CEO. While Dogfish Head's chief operating officer was promoted to CEO, this is a new position at Dogfish Head.  Sam Calagione's role as president and chairman of the board does not change.

Delmarva Public Radio apologizes for the error.

To clarify:

Nick Benz has been promoted to the new role of CEO at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Del. The role of founder and president Sam Calagione does not change.

On WSDL and Drop-Outs

The old Caruthers Hall studio tower. The STL's are the two "dishes" located near the top.

If you have been listening to WSDL, 90.7 FM for the past week, you have most likely heard something like this:

Instead of “Broadcasting from the campus of Salisbury University”…..you hear.

“Broa---from---the camp---of—University”.

You are hearing what we call “drop- outs”.  It is extremely annoying and frustrating; both for you the listener and us here at  Delmarva Public Radio.

Why the Drop-Outs?
