Friends of Delmarva Public Radio

The Friends of Delmarva Public Radio will be meeting this afternoon with the President of Salisbury University Janet Dudley-Eshbach and the University’s Provost Diane Allen with a proposal to take over management of the station.

Around 20 people spoke at a gathering of around 250 on the campus of Salisbury University last night pleading with the Salisbury University Foundation to save Delmarva Public Radio.

A 16 page consultant’s report recommends ending WSDL NPR News and Talk programming and converting it to a contemporary music station to appeal to a younger audience.

Dennis Hamilton with Public Radio Capital said this stood in contrast to the older audiences for classical music and news/talk.
