Minnesota Public Radio programmers described their new format for their just-acquired third Twin Cities station as an “anti-format” for younger ears that will gather eclectic music and “take the work out of finding music and put the fun back in,” Deborah Rybak reported in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. MPR bought the channel, WCAL, from St. Olaf College over the objections of WCAL’s classical music fans. Some spoke against the station sale at an FCC hearing on media consolidation in St. Paul last week. With money from the sale, the college said it will endow five chairs and repair the organ in its chapel.
