Statement from Boston University Regarding Jane Christo

Contact: Kevin Carleton, 617/353-2240 |

We want to thank Ms. Christo for her many accomplishments over the years. Under her leadership, WBUR has become a national leader in public radio news, providing five hours daily of locally produced news programming covering local, national and international issues. The station has won virtually every award for excellence in news broadcasting, and the audience has grown to over half a million listeners. With Ms. Christo’s help, WBUR has become one of the pre-eminent public radio stations in the United States. We wish her well.

The university’s investigation into anonymous allegations relating to WBUR is not yet complete, and so it is premature to comment on that subject.
