Bob Edwards out as host of Morning Edition

New York Times: NYT HomePage reports Edwards to Be Replaced as NPR Host. “National Public Radio has bounced Bob Edwards, host of “Morning Edition” since its inception in 1979, out of his job.” By The Associated Press.

How sad, six months short of his 25th year on the show. I’ve enjoyed Edwards a lot. Replacing him for no apparent reason than “refreshing” the show seems pretty weak. Glad they didn’t treat Cronkite like that.
