Video sting? Schiller resignation? No big deal for these listeners

The NPR video sting and subsequent resignation of its president Vivian Schiller prompted little reaction from listeners at two Washington state NPR affiliates. The Seattle Times reports that "the news was greeted in Seattle with a collective shrug: two e-mails and one phone call" to KUOW-FM. Station President Wayne Roth said that "unlike the Juan Williams affair, that got a lot of response from both listeners and nonlisteners, this seems relatively quiet." At KPLU in Tacoma, two e-mails arrived. "They just wanted to know what happened," said Paul Stankavich, g.m. "It was a good conversation." Has your station heard from viewers or listeners? Let Current know.
