SPJ Florida and Other Journalism Groups Condemn WLRN Takeover From School Board
The Miami-Dade School Board is looking to take control over local public radio and television station WLRN by directly managing it. The school board, which already owns the station, is now looking to abolish the management of WLRN — the nonprofit South Florida Public Media — and give themselves direct control over operations. See why SPJ Florida is standing up against it and why we’re urging others to do the same.
