UPDATE: President Becker seems to have a more measured tone in his interview with The AJC’s Rodney Ho. Still seems like the die has been cast and he’s OK killing Album 88. Which is not a good thing.
He also seems to be actively trying to infuriate more people with his decision to kill WRAS.
“It’s happening. It’s not going to be reversed.”
“We’ll weather this. People get upset when there’s change.”
The reason people are upset is because WRAS was excellent. There was no burning desire from anyone (other than the bean counters and GPB) to switch to an anodyne public broadcasting station. Had there been some consultation or advance warning, this probably could have been handled slightly better. Now, apparently he wants to piss in the eye of everyone who was upset.
I could have accepted the decision from GSU to switch had he made even the slightest attempt at diplomacy. Instead, I now don’t want him to lead Georgia State anymore.
