WFYI has ruined WBAA

WFYI, public radio Indianapolis, purchased WBAA, Indiana’s oldest radio station and the voice of Purdue, in one of a handful of Mitch Daniels moves that have pissed me off.

At the time of the purchase, I considered WBAA a better-run station than WFYI, but I had no idea how terribly-run they would make WBAA. I just finished (Monday morning), listening to a news segment that ran unintelligibly at half- or quarter-speed. Broadcasts from WBAA are routinely jumping back and repeating 5-10 seconds of material. As I typed this, they played three things simultaneously (live stream and two pre-recorded announcements, one of them an inaccurate announcement of the time).
