KPBS Strengthens News Service

I think this move is deplorable. It's shocking how repetitive the news is already, I hear the same program and most certainly the same information throughout the course of the day, and to take away one of the strongest elements KPBS used to offer, Performance Today, is a horrendous decision.

I love to listen to the news, but PT was an invaluable part of their format and to drop it is to me, completely inexplicable. Not enough listeners? There comes a point in which pandering to the bottom line and baser tastes, is not acceptable, especially in public broadcasting, which I always believed had an obligation to uphold cultural standards. Truly shocking.

I hope this anti-cultural move is quickly reconsidered.
