I read all about this yesterday – but didn’t really believe it. I thought it would go away. But then this morning I was laying there willing myself to get up, listening to the usual morning radio. Bob Edwards was absent. Renee Montagne kept saying “Bob Edwards is out today – but I am Renee Montagne”. I raised my fist to the ceiling – “Those bastards! I want Bob!”
I have already sent Bob an email telling him that I want him to stay.
A bunch of other people are pretty pissed about it too. I agree with the kids at metafilter – I will write a letter to NPR or sign whatever I need to sign.
NPR is making it look like he wants to leave. Bob loves Morning Edition. Its his thing. They are taking it away from him. Fooey.

The father of NPR has been given the boot.
