Committee to study WMUB

02/01/2007

Miami President David Hodge has appointed a committee to review the future of WMUB and its relationship with the university.

The evolution in the public radio market caused by technological developments and the declining state support to the university were cited as forces making the review necessary.

The committee has been asked to:


  • Examine the role, both current and potential, that WMUB plays at Miami.
  • Provide a strategic perspective on WMUB's future in the context of the significant changes that will affect public radio in the next few years.
  • Delineate the investment that Miami currently provides WMUB and examine the full range of alternatives to the current financial commitment.

"I ask that the committee consult widely with all the relevant stakeholders and bring in selected and appropriate expertise," Hodge said.

The committee is to report their findings no later than May 1.

Committee members are:

Richard Campbell (journalism), committee chair; Adolph Haislar (finance and business services); Howard Kleiman (communication); William McKenna (philosophy); Cathy McVey (IT services); Adrienne Rexroad, Kay Snavely (management); Peyton Stanforth (student); Justine Stokes (graduate student); Bill Triick, Allan Winkler (Distinguished Professor of History); Richard Little (university communications), ex-officio.
