The former development director of Ann Arbor’s Michigan Radio pleaded no contest yesterday to a charge of embezzling from the station. The Detroit News reports that two other defendants, including the current g.m. of WDET-FM in Detroit, pleaded not guilty. News of the crimes did not appear to affect Michigan Radio’s spring fund drive, reports the Free Press, though pledges are down at WDET. A station exec attributes the drop to a recent format change.
