Columnist suggests ending WHYY’s Delaware presence

Delaware could save “half a million bucks” if it pulled the plug on local studios of WHYY in Wilmington, Del. That’s what a News Journal columnist thinks should be done. Why? He feels that “the station’s idea of programming was offering day-old sports scores and not to broadcast news, weather or sports on weekends or holidays. That’s not a television station.” Who knows, he may get his wish: The Philadelphia Inquirer recently reported that the station has put its Wilmington facility’s building on the market for $1.7 million.
