As NPR sputters, Kling points to problem under the hood
Minnesota Public Radio President Bill Kling attributes the turbulence at NPR to its old-fashioned governance structure in today's New York Times. "NPR has been a victim of its own success," he tells media columnist David Carr. "It never matured in terms of governance as quickly as its news capabilities did. It is controlled by a board from member stations that think of it as primarily a provider of programming for their stations and not the giant media company it has become."
