Much as I respect outgoing NPR President Gary Knell, there really is a lesson to be learned here. 7 Presidents in 7 years! If we in public radio would stop worshipping and coveting those who don’t have the DNA and don’t really value NPR above all else, maybe we would elevate a true believer from WITHIN the system. There are such good people in the system including Wayne Roth, Stewart Vanderwilt, Mark Vogelzang, Jeffrey Dvorkin, Bill Buzenberg, Jay Kernis, etc., etc., etc. If I didn’t name you, and you are really good — get in there and go after it. WE NEED YOU!
