  1. Over the last 10 years, WBUR has evolved from a decent and trustworthy station with unbiased coverage to one that is full of leftist propaganda. Fortunately, there are multiple other alternatives on the airways now. I hope WBUR’s restructuring will bring back more balanced programming.

    1. Over the last 10 years, WBUR has evolved from a decent and trustworthy station with unbiased coverage to one that is full of right wing propaganda. Fortunately, there are multiple other alternatives on the airways now. I hope WBUR’s restructuring will bring back more balanced programming.

  2. At a time when kindness and love seem to be at a premium, it speaks volumes that you have chosen to cancel Modern Love and Kind World. It also seems ironic that you claim to have a “fierce commitment to diversity” while laying off Meghna Chakrabarti and others and name two white people as CEO and assistant Vice President. I have always had great admiration and respect for WBUR and its wonderful array of programming. I’m sorry to say that you have lost that respect and admiration.

  3. At this time when our daily stress has been heightened by the pandemic with all its negative consequences, I regret your decision to cancel the podcast Kind World.
    I understand the financial constraints, but there should always be room for kindness in our lives and this podcast has provided that ray of hope and reminded us we can always be better human beings.

  4. As a long, long, time listener and financial supporter of WBUR, I feel that the program topics are becoming quite weak. I really had no interest in the BIT COIN Broadcast and unless all of the BUR listeners are multi million dollar listeners, it was a waste of time to devote an hour to a topic which has limited appeal to a broad audience when there are more important issues to discuss. Thank you.

  5. As an avid fan & supporter of WBUR, I lament what I perceive is a clear, yet painful, decline in programming at the station, although my trust in the news remains solid. Loosing popular, trusted hosts of popular shows, no matter what the circumstances, has seriously hurt the quality of such shows. Filling open host chairs with the nearest warm body v waiting for competent replacements has, I believe, hurt the programming the most. I think it has led to a decline of BUR’s national reputation as well.

    The good news is that many of these issues are fixable with courageous leadership that will make needed changes. I hope those changes materialize.
