Some radio changes over the weekend...
Michael Eric Dyson has left his NPR show that's produced at Morgan State University, and the production will go off the air altogether at the end of the month.
For the next three weeks, guest hosts will fill in on "The Michael Eric Dyson Show," according to Richard Prince's "Journal-isms" blog. Read it here.
Dyson, a prominent social critic and Georgetown University professor, has been hosting the interview and talk show produced for NPR by Morgan State University's radio station on a grant of $505,000 from the Corporation for Public broadcasting.
That's a substantial grant, and the program was part of public radio's widely-publicized African-American Programming Consortium. But the show was only carried on about a dozen public radio stations nationally, according to Prince's report.
