Patty Wente tells the St. Louis Business Journal that she is considering her legal options after the University of Missouri-St. Louis ended her employment this week as g.m. of its public radio station, KWMU. “There has been no financial mismanagement at KWMU, and the university knows everything that has transpired,” she said. Wente also spoke with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “I’m a tough manager, and managers have to make tough decisions. When you make decisions, some people will be happy and some will not be happy.”
